Without You

Another emerald leaf
Tumbles

Her desolation
Eve of sinful revelation

Whisper’s entrails
Swaying flat on asphalt conundrums

Her dismissive solidarity
Holding of hands
Eyes, opposite

Kisses
Like desert nights under hollow rain

Drizzled animosity,
Tomorrow she’ll tell me she loves me
Without calling me, “baby”

Lover’s pacifier, unwashed

Winds of remembrance
Shut away in Pandora’s tossed box

For I, kneel
Towards angelic genesis
With diamond clarity

Embrace of cupid’s incipience

Where
I 
R    e      m       o       v           e
You

My voice ascends
Into constellation octaves

Now
Without
You

    I feel as though there is something that I deep down want to hang on to but know that I must let go. It is a little disorienting but freeing at the same time. Wow, I have not read a poem in a long time that made me feel and think so much! Thank you for sharing this. :)

    Lovely visual used with the spacing of words. A very nice effect I'd say. I've used it a couple of times in my poetry. Once, again another great one. "Like desert nights under hollow rain" what a gorgeous simile! Always, Laura

    I'm just seeing this now! Damn. Shame on me! But, yes, I try not to overplay the spacing of words. But, this had to be done this time around. :) Thanks so much, Laura!

    Sometimes in the moments when you feel the most its when you grow. Garner your strength and move beyond the things that held you captive.. It's awesome when you look back and see I have survive and I am in a better space. Okay that's me done rambling. Coming back to this gem, what can I say? Awesome piece once again Drake, loved how you spaced "remove" adds another element to your message :) love Wilma

    You confirm my opinion that you are a very inspired poet. Your words, except a few exceptions, are not trivial and also when trivial are put in a deep contest of words giving relevance to concepts

    even if he speaks about 'genesis',a higher octave voice and more..somehow a piece of him is locked in that pandora s box clinged to a memory..The battle is hard when its about moving on but We all did it and We all can..Hope i got the meaning of d poem.Going tmfvs

    Your brain is on FIRE! I love it! Though, I will say that it's not really a "hiding" of pain. It's a release of it. A letting go. You get me. I like that. :) Thank you so much, Charmaine.

    Genesis- Maybe a new life without her?'Winds of remembarance tossed in pandora's box'-I wonder what happens if that box opens releasing all evils-Will.hope remain?Still pondering..Still holding to memories. But then determination as if fighting a battle within come your last lines..almost a command'I remove you'..then the optimistic ending of singing in high notes..You do it so well-hiding the pain.Powerful poem as if Someone wants to move on..someone wants to erase the heartache yet somehow
