A Tendency For Love In A Forlorn Hope (An Affected Poem)

 

 











A Tendency For Love In A Forlorn Hope 



 

 


 

Are we falling away? This is just supposed to be a beginning.  Our

hearts tore open, jutting out of our chests.

 

My imploding rib cage is

so heartfelt as if tiny sharp things are piercing through my skin

—especially in that seeming

—point of no return.

 

 

I kept steady and not wanting anything more, out of this;

Except, now that our fates intertwine.

 

 

Now what am I supposed to do

to unleash my whole self 

to you?

 

You're great and nice—at that;

I am out of words.

 

Your wiles foreshadow me.

Territorial Imperative (An Affected Poem About Chances In Love)











Territorial Imperative 

 





You know that I could love

you with agape;

 

It is such a wonder that you

had stopped me on my way

 

But when I had to think of you

It has kept me dazed—always

 

My waking states alter day-to-day

Just for seeing your smiling face

 

A guy who would be likened

to a man, by a woman

 

It is unchartered territory,

But it could be the best one.














Author's Notes/Comments: 

Reedited 11.23.2019 (I have merely supplanted the former erroneous emendations, as indicated below in smaller fonts); 07.11.2019 (misspelling/typographical error corrections that are affecting its sense-making intended meaning-making attempts, e.g., or losinng. perhaps < or losing*, perhaps):  



"Territorial Imperative" is a poem about getting (or losing, perhaps) our chances in love.  But this is taken from my viewpoint, of my own subjective chance(s) or lack thereof—because it is relational (at the time when it was written).  The date of its composition supposedly was on 04/18/2017 at around 04:56 A.M.

Further

Verse 1:
I watch you slip

Further away from me

As you make your dreams a reality.

Don't you dare forget about me.

 

Chorus:
I won't forget about

The promises we made together.

Those were the days

I felt alive with anyone.

 

Verse 2:
If it were me,

I'd melt your cold heart once again.

Just take me by the hand.

I'll guide you through hell and back.

 

Bridge:
If only you could see me now,

Home wouldn't seem so far away.

Now that you're further away,

Our memories flood back to me.

 

Last-Chorus:
Now that I'm no longer your's,

I feel dissonant.

Bring me to life.

Won't you take me home? 

Author's Notes/Comments: 

While listening to the Spotify playlist: "K-Acoustic(s)", I was inspired to write a song Cat Clark. Here is the bridge lyrics to it: "If only you could see me now/home wouldn't seem so far away/now that you're further away/Our memories flood back to me" (Song title: "Further"). It's a playlist of Korean songs sung in acoustic style (stripped down version). It's mainly love songs so I wrote another "love" song. You should try to write some songs Cat to get your feelings out there and express yourself better. It might help you. That's just a suggestion. Grab any notebook or piece of paper and write.
