The one February 28, 2017

What a pity, you’ll never know

How many times I’ve fallen

In love with you

The first time so unexpected

Violent, like a blow to the head

A technicolor event of dancing spots.

The disbelief, the denial

Followed by stunning clarity.

Yes, i was in fact in love.

The next time i fell, so full of awe

Oh your short-lived stay up on a pedestal!

But the third time was really my favorite

It was surreal but lucid.

Like walking in a well known dream

And falling off a cliff.

Full of consciousness and no illusions

We were older, more forgiving.

I think this time, it was for good.

Then there were all those other times in between

Like when i looked across the room

And you were looking at me, unflinching

Or every time your hand curled around mine

But most of all the countless number of times

You knew me better than I did myself.

In my regret of not starting

My life with you

I begin to imagine ending it with you.

I could cleave my existence

Right down the middle

One half his, the other yours.

For you.

I wish I wrote more.

I remember

In the middle of the day

How one time

You smelled like cigars

Strong and sweet.

I remember inhaling your skin

Inches away from my mouth.

I remember all this

In the middle of the mundane

You stand silent

Stoic and solid

Like a great big oak.

While I rush around

In my childish fervor

Like the wind out of control.

Must you be so immovable?

Giving away only a rustle

And losing but a leaf or two.

Of all the odd ones,

This one is the one.

 

 

Love me home January 13, 2017

though it feels as if

all i ever do is leave,

never quite knowing

if we will endure,

i do believe

someday

you will

love me home.
