Great Satisfaction

is reached through Assistance-

also found in its

close kin- Perseverance.

If you could lift these wounds,

peel them off like children’s stickers;

if you could house my faint heart

drumming under your arms,

my face pressed against the maternal warmth

of your chest.

if you could see me;

infantile, sobbing over scarlet cuts and scrapes,

the opening of my innocent skin– this Earth’s first incision.

My darling, my friend,

of whom I know so much and still

so little,

would you be there?

Would the hole in your chest contract,

and your starry-eyed glitter of dreams

recede into your pupils

so you could wholly see the crimson blood of reality?

My darling, my friend,

would you extract yourself

from your fragrant life of new suitors

just so you could cup the softness of my temples

and cool the agitated flare that beat, beat, beat

such a racket against my skull?

If you could take an excursion

from the humdrum sidewalks

and lost-luster neon so we could venture forth

into the dark and endless green, the contained infinity of the natural,

would you?

My dear dear friend, would you?

Sorry I haven’t posted anything in a while. Life’s been hectic. I’ve had tests and re-tests and essays, and I honestly haven’t written that much- other than a few bits here and there- so I’ve been struggling with that.

Also, today drama reared its ugly head.

Tell me, is it wrong to ask “what could I have done?” or “is it my fault?” I’ve always been the middleman, the guy who prefers compromise to taking sides, so when people have fallings-out, is it wrong to ask yourself these questions?

Is it possible to be too empathetic?

One good thing that comes out of (forgive my hyperbolic use of this word) tragedy: writing ideas. Maybe I’m just choosing to make this a big deal. I’m always there as a friend, even if I am smack dab in the middle of an awkward situation.

I dunno. This may just seem like mumbo jumbo to you who read this, but it feels cathartic to let it out.

Hopefully I will be posting at least one poem every day this week, even on the weekends so look forward to that! Also feel free to answer any of the weird questions I asked.

Happy Halloween those of you who celebrate!

Stay tuned…
