Passing on glass fields,
Memories of a past life
And then buried
In two coats of repressed paints
A computerized voice calls out to the sea
With girders like large faces
In utter disregard of what is said
“Do you know how far the willows will droop on pavements previously traveled?”
Neither do I and that is why I ask questions
Nostalgia will be the death of us all!
Remembering what it means to be alive…helps
Sometimes, not all the time though
Simple truths can’t lie
When faced with adversity
I turn the other cheek
My indifference is like the rising water
It envelopes and soothes the fishy part of myself
Do you feel the vein?
A needle helps me eliminate all pretense of feeling
So this bulbous feeling can’t take an inch from me
Of whatever I’m used to
And whatever you will provide
Nerve endings sever flighty half-measure
You’re Quarter Drawn
And pavements are spilled with amorphous shapes
The city is like a never ending shape
And I’m it’s homeless
And I’ll wear your pink pants stained with self-consciousness
And I’ll take your pixelated image
But I won’t swirl in its composition
Let the fat warm you, gristle of blankets
And you drink your lemoned iced tea
And I’ll be at your curved thighs
Waiting for whatever is left
…I am whatever you left with me.

Great arrangement on the page. Like playing verbal hop-scotch.
Thank you 🙂
Beautiful, love this
Thank you 🙂
First of all, thank you for following my blog. Hope that you will like some of the posts I have written.
The pain and suffering that one feels from a heart break is immense. It is too difficult to move on at times especially of how it ended. The wish of wanting to start over and repair the broken glass seemed impossible. Love the poem and much love ❤
Thank you for that comment and also for following my blog. I really appreciate the support.
I don’t know if this poem came from a place of heartbreak but more from how every person you become entangled with leaves a piece of themselves on you. But I do love your interpretations…keep them coming! 😃
And I most definitely will keep an eye out for your posts too…😃
