Scraped Knees

I trip over the intricate details
Falling over, under, through
Coasting and rushing
Tasting and splitting
Your words
		While you stagger on the surface 
		Unaware and oblivious
I hang on the memories of your past
Reliving your kiddy sensations
Crushed and enthralled
Hyper and confused
By growing
		While you envision me the same
		2D and stagnant
And my heart stings 
Much like scraped knees

Because you can’t understand me

Thanks for the compliments Peter, its always good to know that your words and phrases are useful in helping someone else discover what they are trying to say.

Please dont be offended Courtney, but ive always said, lack of understanding comes from lack of communication, if you want someone to know your heart, just tell them, the truth will set you free whether its painful to hear or not. If he doesnt listen then its on him, but a smart loving man would. Sorry for rambling, happy holidays, Carl

Thanks for the insight Carl, but this poem is actually about when you keep communicating in different ways, have tried everything, and realize that there is nothing else to be done but recognize defeat..
