Call time out
You warned me
long ago in a
darkened coffee house
Acoustic guitar strings' sounds
filled the spaces in between
Sounding like the moments
after the blaze went out
Not you, your kiss actually
felt you like you cared.
I remember my first unhappy-but-in-love poems
one sided battled to save our loveGreek chorus,
"My sky is falling"
Never concerned if anyone else had a cloudy sky or a
thunderstorm or a drought in her or his or their sky.
I'll find my way, differently
You stopped letting me love you
unless your maleness was pushing
inside me, deep and I was
rubbish in my gutter
surrendering to your power
while you were so busy
running runing running
flashlight from my cell phone
lit the way as I dressed
in the dak
instead of my lips meeting yours
erratic and unmappable
give myself the gift of space
what you want what you don't
random fabric metaphors
shout "my sky is falling, my....."I refuse
to do it.
Need some form
This poem was actually built after it was written. Read about the process on my Julie Unplugged blog. First, I freewrote, stream of consciousness for five minutes. Then, I plucked out the phrases I thought had the most potential to serve this poem's theme. Then, I copied, cut, drew lines at random, pasted and built a poem.
