As Comfortable As Possible

Closure eludes my clasp 
Love wilts, somehow lasts
The destination beyond my grasp

The dream decays day by day 
Your light, which never fades
Simply stopped shinning my way 

Castrating chains of second chair
Faithfull, I wither for you there 
Sucking stale stagnant air

Barely beating beneath my breast
My heart, now a hospice 
Gently lays it all to rest

Lightly felt faintly heard
Pumping, pain-numbing words
Its over…its over…   its over

A very searching write as I see it on one level Nathan, also I sense you have got the 'feel' of the impersonal way of life's events in this expressive piece..

With all those competitions that you have finalised, where do you find the time to write as well? A very deep, painful write. You have dredged up just the right amount of angst and despair for this piece. Well written. I also agree with Andrea, fabulous title. Oh and thanks for the win.

Nate, I'm deeply moved by your poem. I can't stand self-closure. Especially when she or he does not know they are the ones that put distance between two footprints meant to be. I think this is how it feels when love runs out. It's like staring at the Mona Lisa until she fades & loses all color. Well, if your heart's ever put in a hospice place, I will look for U & revive U. This is what I call a perfect 10 poem. Until the fat lady sings. Stay Fresh & keep sharing, pain-numbing words. SKAT LOVE

Maybe if you stop smoking, you could breathe a bit better:) Wink! Wink! Sucking stale stagnant air, you say? Bad lungs are gonna send you down a hospice home. It makes me sad that your heart is not beating the right way. Maybe you need a hug... I don't want you to die. Nothing is over until both agree it's over. AND, I'm not signing any death forms today. Enjoyed your poem, It's breaking my Auspice Heart. To know, you might be dying soon. Love you more than yesterday. I'm Always Yours
