Can’t win for losing

behavior not unusual

anything less perfect

now your actions are worthless

forgetting beneath the surface

is the person

forever certain

that anything pertinent

wouldn’t be adverted.

That would be a disservice.

Yet…

Being honest on purpose

have you feeling like you

deserve this.

Dear poetry,

For a minute I had lost my way.

I had placed you on a shelf and

you just asked por que?

We’ve been together since I was a young boy,

inseparable like conjoined twins

you give me so much joy…

As cliché as it seems I’m back. Not necessarily better than ever, but inside of me there’s a new light and you’re the reason I beam.

The spiteful “I” was glad that while I was gone nobody came alone and managed to get in between you and I by damaging what we both know and feel is so strong.

For that I’m grateful.

But I won’t lie I would’ve been mad if someone had exerted dominance over you like an over-bearing stepdad.

I’m such a hypocrite.

Toss you aside while new acquaintances occupy my present mind, but if you ever chose to leave me I’d get defensive with my pride.

It’s not that I don’t think of you.

If I ever had to prove to you that I love you I’d never deny it.

Shit I relish at the opportunity for you to see the antagonism that’s been berating me, ailing me, keeping my thoughts from fleeting to thee, mentally impaling me.

But I know it’s just excuses.

So to put it short, I’m here for you my dear.

I’m re-opening myself to you in an attempt to make it clear that if you ever feel forsaken I’ll be the first to shed a tear.

If you ever feel deserted then you can damn sure be for certain that I’ll recapture that magic and reveal you behind the curtain.

Afterall, I’m here to stay.

For a minute I had lost my way.

I had placed you on a shelf and

you just asked por que?

We’ve been together since I was a young boy,

inseparable like conjoined twins

you give me so much joy…
