I Wanted to Share Everything With You

March 30, 2017

I wanted to Share Everything With You  

 

from the time of your birth

 

 

there always was a dissonance in me about everything 

 

 

growing more and more distance and diffident

 

 

we traveled further apart

 

 

there were circumstances falls   losses interminable penetrating disturbing

 

 

losing everything that ever mattered  between us

 

 

sadly   there never was a time to staunch the bleeding 

 

 

we each became more separate and intractable in our ways

 

our paths never to reconcile and cross again

 

descending down the Jericho Road there were immeasurable wayfaring burdens

 

 

the near fatal accident the aborted trip to see me the loss of complete  mental health and 

 

then immerses both in economic and social pulchritude  the misery of clawing out a well 

that peers up from the darkness into the pitch black darkness

 

9/11  more agony and falls bruises bangs dislocated

 

 

on the other side of the hemisphere at 20,000 leagues under the sea

 

in a swelling crack in the Teutonic fault line

 

 

whose fault was there to name or throw stones in glass houses or be contrite or unblemished

 

All of you moved on but me I groveled in the romantic gesture that I could save US

 

of course living in a paltry place wherever it was fit to lie down and whenever to let my eyes shut

 

dreams past like kaleidoscopic silhouettes of what once was

 

All of US victims of our tragic limping skulking home

 

a glass menagerie

 

FORGOTTEN

 

buried on shards of sandy shores of antiquity
