Now it doesnt make sense why we bothered
because we both know we didnt really try.
and i've been working for the same things
but i know that isnt any cause to ask twice.
frankly, i dont want to know if you have been
sleeping alone during these kind of nights,
i'd like to think that the past could resurface
though i know my name goes out along with the lights.
it's not fair to tell me it's the wrong way
but maybe i'm just trying to convince i know you.
either way, we arent working for the same thing,
you'd much rather throw intiative across the room.
but it's wasted and fake and fully abonormal
and i dont want to think about what that could do.
it's a sweet sound to come home to if you think about it,
even if we both know the difference between good & true.
the exact opposites of all we ever were or could be
and i'm a little more okay with swallowing that.
but sorry if my acid reflux decides to catch up with me,
because swallowing then would be considered half bad.
i promise not to confuse you more than i have to,
i guess it's just hard coming home to an empty bed.
and even if we both know i was five up and counting
you somehow managed to convince me that was all i had.
(i love this poem so much that i often read it when i'm stressed)
i just noticed, however, that you wrote "abOnormal" i'm guessing you meant "abnormal?" Unless abonormal is a word, which it could be for all i know.
anyway, just thought i'd let you know
I really enjoyed that read - it was saturated with emotion and was REAL feelings rather than a drummed up expression or cliches... I liked your ocassional rhyming but without a syllable count or structure making it seem too formal and tight.
Good piece. Look forward to reading your others. Welcome to the club.
1st rule - Dont talk about The Club.
2nd rule - Dont talk about The Club.
3rd rule - read all of Mo's poems and tell her she's the best... hehee - kidding! :)
I've only recently read your work, but i can honestly say it amazes me.
every line is perfection and the pragmatics are so clever and subtle.
you have a rare ability to completely manipulate words and integrate them into real seeming situations in your poems.
you are an inspirational writer.
