Promise

September 3, 2007
A wrote this in reply to the previous poem, “You Can’t Be Right.” He based it lightly on a piece by Pablo Neruda. You’ll see how he captured my heart…

For me, I’ll never be alone, like the stars
Even as they hang aloft in lonely skies
They blaze forever a feeling that can never diminish
A thousand miles is no further than my reach
For I am always with you
In some blessed mountain, whispering
To waking leaves lined with silver trees, that
I’ll be waiting, so if you come, you’ll find me,
I promise

But like this place, we are all dying
Suffocating under guilt
I have made questions, which I can’t answer.
I need to know, but I guess it’s more important
To be known. And to you,
I’m neither.

But in this place, I feel like I have stepped out of time.
To a place where I feel you through the dark, so close as the night
Breaking upon day. A place where I does not exist, nor you
So close that your eyes close as I fall asleep.
Though this is time, nor am I out of it.

And so I bear these feelings, these thoughts
Which only certain dark things are to be dreamed of
In secret, between the shadow and the sould
I care for you straightforwardly, without complexities or pride;
So I love you because I know no other way
I feel you without knowing how, or when, or from where.
Yet not a word is said, nor gesture made, I’m saving them
For you.

So if you come, you’ll find me.
I promise.

For you, always. As always, all ways.

I’ve decided to resurrect some of my older poetry from long ago and share it with you all. Some are happy, some are sad, and most all of them are complicated. Also, they are very personal, pertaining to what I have gone through in the past. I’ll also post some poetry that is written by others.It’s nice to be able to let the words flow from your fingertips to the paper. I miss that feeling. Hopefully I can be motivated to write some new poetry soon.Journeying back to 2007:

You Can’t Be Right


How can I start?
This feeling literally is beyond words,
Comprehension, thoughts,
Definitely beyond action. I can’t do
Anything.
Not at all.
My conscience is too clear.
Too focused.
But wait, that’s not true.
You blur its vision,
Causing me to careen through my world,
Questioning myself.
This can’t be right.
You can’t be right.
Not at all.
And yet I’m drawn to you.
You’ve enchanted me
Completely.
I’m casting my heart into the ocean,
Desperately hoping it’ll wash up to your shore
Where you’ll pick it up and hold it to your own.
This can’t be right.
You can’t be right.
I see his words reaching out to me.
I hear his voice calling out to me.
Suffocating me.
You’re different.
You’re selfless.
You know about him and
Still you push me in his direction.
Too late.
My head belongs to him,
But my heart cries for you.
God it hurts.
What in the world do you think of me?
My actions are loyal to him,
But my thoughts betray.
How can I face him?
Or you?
I can’t end it with him.
He’s a wonderful loving gift.
You can’t be right.
He may have my body, my touch,
My kiss,
My endearment and care.
But my heart is locked away,
And he doesn’t have the key.
Guess what?
I threw it in the ocean too.

Oh the memories are seeping back…
