Why are you here?

Your familiar skin,
Radiating miscellaneous emptiness

Trembling wanton security
Filled with finite smiles
Infinite complexities

Why should we indulge you again?

A rejected buffet of frozen tenderness,
Aching for high horses to help you gallop

Hunger, no vacancies to reside in your malnourished smile

Wishing for a soldier-in-arms
Wishing for a human-in-arms
As you reach for your step-stool glory
Another dignified teardrop
Stolen by cacti palms

Proverbial residue streaking across glassy 3rd eye
How would our cries
Affect your tomorrow


Why do you return?

Did your rose tints become another concaved agenda?

5 identities, incarcerated
4 revelations, engorged
3 embellishments, glorified
2 pre-judgments, sexualized
1 memory, tainted

Yet, your leech aches for another devouring of serenity.

Hoping to feel #1 again, before expiration
Of your 90 day return policy

Another Cinderella, with a shoe that was never going to fit…

    "Yet, your leech aches for another devouring of serenity."... I know such people... my brother and I both read this, and we both agree its brilliant. I love the initialized questions, very effective and invokes quite a lot of emotions for me. Again, so many lines, but I'll resist quoting them haha. Thanks for the thrill! Always look forward to delving into your poetry. Always, Laura

    This is superb and flows like honeyed hopes, with a bittersweet after taste. Your words took stage and treated the reader to a glimpse of your imagination and poetic skills. A well structured poem with an emotional release launching it into our conscious mind with a subtle impact. Emile #7

    It takes me to a place where a romantic flame is trying to come back into your life. I enjoyed the last line as well putting a nice perspective on things.....Tim
