Long time, no see Tumblr people.
I have been very NOT busy on my vacation, which is just the way I like it. Hoping to re-energize myself, I thought I’d write a couple of short poems.
I don’t know if they’re great, or if they’re shitty, but I like the metaphors, so I hope they don’t sound like a farting donkey in your mind.
(The titles are crossed out to easier define Tumblr and its text issues)
The Unknown Lover
If I touched you, would you let me?
If I hugged you, would you let me?
If I rubbed you, would you let me?
If I kissed you, would you let me?
If I held you, would you let me?
But how will I know
If you don’t tell me so
Shadows through the apartment door
Shattered hopes and dreams beyond
A presence I have not felt since…
I cannot remember my past
I want to wake from this to something better
Far from remiss
The lie is sweeter than the truth
Running from something I can’t see
Looking for something I can’t find
As I wind down the tunnel, I feel fatigued
I want this to end
I want this to begin
I don’t want to see myself dead, or myself, dead
Exorcise these thoughts
Embrace the infinite
And give in
Hope you enjoyed that shit. I liked writing it. Poetry. Fuck yeah.
