Random

This poem is not sure

of itself

even the grammar is off

a bit

and now the lines
begin to sag
and words clump
together like seaweed

(I see you in the audience…
leaning over…
whispering…)

I know I can’t be trusted
to write anything important
anything that matters to me
I’m just slamming words together
feelings are so stifling
and I can’t get control
Even my dreams fail in the editing process
Each night I’m overwhelmed
with thousands of reels
I awaken and splice them together
and then rip them apart
again
and again

(I remember the moment
I discovered how you really felt
and had to pretend I didn’t know.)

We are sitting together
in this burgeoning garden
watching love blossom among the vivid colors
In the center is a fountain
spilling out the future
the future
we both imagined
as it runs over the ledge
and disappears
