The Ether

Folder: 
2015

 

I hate how I miss you

sometimes

out of nowhere

 

Like when I am considering

new love

or a poem says

“once you kissed my stomach

and I started crying”

 

or how forever feels like

too much now

or how love and life have

become intimate friends

speeding down open country road

looking for a field to raise stars in

 

or how  most of the time

I forget you

 

wake up

 

do the dishes

 

go to school

 

just move on

 

or how your absence is absent

and the person I’ve become

is more me than the girl

you drew upon my bones

 

or how sometimes I miss you

out of nowhere

and almost as often you return

to that from which you

Don't let any one shake your dream stars from your eyes, lest your soul Come away with them! -SS

hmmm

maybe...or maybe it's just that muse which brings that out in me cause the lesson learnt from him was such that any love felt for him now, big or small, lasting or fleeting, any love for him now can be and will only ever continue to be hopeless????  that where he belongs for the rest of my life is in that cloud of darkness past my atmosphere. yet when those times come when I remember him as he was then he is all-pervading. and still no way that I recall realting to that relationship will ever change that it was volitiale and highly flamable... and that it will always be the shit that makes my soul burn slow?

 

I had half a bottle of wine tonight...lol... maybe I shouldn't reply to comments ;)

I guess the lesson to take from this is first that wine and poets make brillance, and second, that if I can get over that I can get over anything (even if it takes like 3-4 ears lol)
