Dedicated to the one I didn't write this for

And I love you
Like a dog’s first date
With a fire hydrant

No, that’s not right.

I worship you
As if you were a wine collection owned by Jesus
Minus the prerequisites

Better.

Wait, it’s you again, my yesterday.
Why are your eyes seducing my stanzas?

You linger in my mist
Equivalent to a bipolar lighthouse

Blinking rapidly for hope to notice your sadness
While your light bulb remains cracked

Go away!

Ok, back to it.

No longer do I need careless whispers.

I just want to hold your hand
Swinging life away from skeletons’ demeanor

Be my sun, as I rise
I’ll be your sun, as we set

Damn it, I smell your unwashed lyric again!

Why do your illiterate, colored eyes remain atop my mountain?!

I tossed your heart off my peak
That humidified night in June
When God’s tornado told me to stay away from your fallacy!

You’ve become a rejected stranger, stranger.

Sigh, ok, one last try.

You want me to be your diamond
On platinum band

But, I just want to be an “I miss you”, tomorrow.
I can ask no more than this. 

To be a chorus in your daily songs,
I request

ENOUGH!!!

You continue glazing my thoughts
Hang gliding your way through my handsome vernacular

You were an exclamation point
Turned into closure’s period

Now, my fortitude shall delete your dialect
With whimsical laughter compiled
From shattered dreams of old

…

An illuminated solstice
Waving goodbye 
To onyx, cotton puffs in my Ionosphere

Please
Return
Nevermore

My Angel, I’m sorry I drifted against my sea of distant memories.

Love does not frighten me.
But, it tries.

I can only be certain of today.

I will sacrifice my pride
To become a pauper in your royal presence
If it means our eyes can become a correlated breath

I implore,
Be my tomorrow
These stanzas were only ever gifted for you

Be my tomorrow
For I’ve dishonorably discharged my yesterdays

    I enjoyed reading this one again. The title makes me think of the song " You're so Vain".

    This poem made me smile! I love all of the comparisons in this poem. Very nicely done!..... So true, love can pull us in so many different directions, we don't know which way to go, or not to go!....You might like my poem "I Want To Be Yours". Also, thank you for the kind comments on my poem "Broken Wings". It truly means a lot!

    Hi Drake--stopping by your poems to be inspired once more. I thought this to be a different style from your pen, but as always you continue to intrigue with your clever words.

    Hey Kim!!! =D Yes, I felt a bit strange writing this, at first, solely because of the almost bi-polar approach of the lines. But, when the title of this poem came to my mind, I knew something oddly special was going to come from it. I have to try and be a little different w/each poem. Thank you so much! =D

    Borrow once it's a compliment, twice it's plagiarism, three times it's mine! Hey Drake your book is now sitting on a coffee table in Kelowna British Columbia. It arrived today. I find your cover art particularly intresting. I look forward to sitting down and reading it.

    Whatever has been said below......I cannot top with my comment.......they have nailed your genius better than I could. But if I were a crafty plagiarizing culprit, there are so many lines in this masterpiece that I could (and would) threaten to 'borrow'.......if only I could get away unscathed !! :) lol.....you are the master of impulsive words we all wish we could spout, but have not the tongue or wit to write! Wow!!

    I will sacrifice my pride To become a pauper in your royal presence... Loved these lines....Loved the last two lines...loved the italicized bits....BUT...DON'T sacrifice your pride, Drake. She isn't worth it. True, I don't know the story, but I do know you...and she is a crazy fool. You be the king and make her the pauper in your presence! Great write!

    They say there is a fine line between love and hate and that came across here beautifully Drake....would love to hear the story behind this one. Emotions jump recklessly driven by passion. Excellent! Hugs
