Here I am. Retreating beyond your reach.
Chase me. I want you to.
Catch me. If you dare.
Your intentions known. Your thoughts, not.
Silence. Cheap whiskey breath.
This moment before our day begins is when I love you best.
Hello from my first blog post in many months. To my followers and those whose blogs I follow, I apologize for my sudden absence. What started out as a technical problem turned into an unplanned sabbatical from social media. I needed to focus my energy on other events in my life and I’m not generally the kind of person who can just cut back on something. It’s all or nothing. So I had to choose nothing for a while in terms of blogging. But I’ve missed it and am very glad to be back. I looking forward to reconnecting with you all.
He leaves quickly, forgetting his dental records all over her torso. Incisors. Bicuspids. Remaining out back, she rolls topless in the grass. Digs a hole. Envies hermaphrodites. Masturbates in the sun.
Done, she gets up and flicks grass out of his teeth.
I grew up believing that running away was never the answer and yet I am boarding the train anyway, told I needed a fresh start. But there’s the catch with new beginnings: they are preceded by something requiring you to start over. And I know one day you’ll find me.
You once revealed yourself to me. Your icy exterior thawed by my warm kiss, I saw just briefly, your true colours. I fell in love. But now my visibility is obscured and I am drifting away. One last attempt at ablation is all I have left.
In the coming darkness of our love, all you give is your shadow. So familiar am I with your outline, I could mold you in my sleep. But I long for more than our silhouettes dancing against the setting sun. Reveal yourself to the light. I am not afraid.
pull back those layers
beautiful and well executed
you are not
too old to be loved
too hard to be touched
because of your beauty
I am falling
Love is photophobic.
Concealed in basements
in the foundation.
This poem is an updated and edited version of my post Like Leonard Cohen.
I’d love to know which one you prefer.
