legs of women

I'm getting that feeling once again the tip of my soul is running away my feet can not keep up with my regret I stole the dreams I had from someone else the failures I felt were never mine or real until the morning I lost you a dozen lives have been lived since a thousand miles I walked to forget this every morning reminds me of you who said we get what we deserve? why try to find the fit that broke? what form can salvation really take? I'm lost in this land with my artist veins I abdicate the thorns ventured past my life trading words for any capital I can count where does content come from I've looked between the legs of women and found where the strife of life began

Swartz, your work should be published. book form, online and/or hard copy. keep posting....jesus wept, "between the legs of women where the strife of life began" will give birth somewhere ... keep posting here, or elsewhere, your small portfolio here is intense, uber intellecutal and impressive.

Hi James, this poem is so tragically beautiful. Every line can be used as a separate quote. My favourite one are "Every morning reminds me of you" and "I'm lost in this land with my artist veins". Very powerful. Thank you for sharing.
