A Retrospective: May 7th, 2005 [Sep. 24th, 2005|04:46 am]

I rarely write poems. I wrote this one on May 7th, 2005. Why not share it with my cunningly sardonic friend Ryan? Surely he will revel in dissecting this literary abomination.

Warmth radiating between
Us—you and me—caught
In this infinite gaze.
Time collapses and suspends,
I Forget what I want
Cannot be.

Deep and dark your
Brown eyes let on a
Secret your heart wishes not
To divulge, but the bulge
Of affection you feel surely
Is betraying you one last time.

I’m crumbling again,
Fumbling for that hope
That ropes my now
Tired soul back into your
Open windows as they
Gaze upon me.

Pain, it creeps into
Stunned hearts defeated
By love not shared.
Wishing I’d never dared
Make the leap into
Oblivion for you.

Falling faster and faster now
Trying to pull
The cord—my lifeline.
Inevitable as gravity,
There’s no turning back
On this one-way avenue.

Descending now and
I didn’t even know
I was falling.
Reckless, not like me
To journey so freely
Yet freeing to journey so.

Fearful now of great heights,
Running from reality
Still never too clever
For fear’s firm grip.
It finds all with x-ray
Vision and stunning efficiency.

The sun’s coming up again,
Throwing tendrils of light
Into the darkness and
Telling me it's worth it.
Loving is living.
Gladly, I endure.

Hey, how 'bout you quit talking so much and suck on my friggin' 'bulge of affection'. Haha, you queer.

This is a very interesting poem. It seems reminds of a dream you relayed to me once, though I can't remember specifics. What motivated you to write this?

Yo, come down to DC with me some weekend, katie's all hot and bothered to see us (me).
