The Cold Shoulder

Has time affected the way you look at me?

The way you read me?

It’s been a thousand hours since I’ve said
That you’re still within my thoughts

But, it seems you’ve chosen to keep your horizon
In check
Without my smile in your clouds

If I visited your detrimental scars more often,
Would you value me again? 

Would I be worthy of a recycled syllable
A preposition, undone
A hyphenated gesture
Telling my worth 
Through congregated verb
That I could still be your sun


My tears are unfiltered apologies
Because the breaths of time
Have become wrapped in escapisms’ tongue

I hoped for your warming laughter
Upon my return

But, the sangre of your silent mo(u)rning
Has delivered the message
That you will not be by my side

So, I will simply slow dance with the metaphor of you.

    There are some corker lines in this spectacular write. Nice to read your words again.

    One of your absolute best writes, Drake. Really touched me. Sometimes people become desensitized because of recent pain or injustice. I've been in a shell for the past month. This place took a lot out of me. Are you back for good? Sure was good reading you. Hugs

    The title pulled me in Drake - so many layers of sadness in your words - making it a fave so i can delve in again:-) hugs jan xx

    Oh, Drake, this is so sad. I was looking for your poems not too long ago, and couldn't find them. I guess they only list your name if you are a premium member? or did you close an account? anyway, you are such an awesome guy, whomever this poem is about, I am sure she MUST find you forgettable. I wont be on the soup much longer, i need time away, i will soupmail you my new number so we can stay in contact. Love and lots of warm hugs, catie :)
