I just

 want to know you

though I

 can’t feel your skin.

 

Don’t think

 it’s something deeper.

Don’t back

 away from me.

 

I wonder now

why i left.

I wonder why

it did not work.

 

But time

 for me is warped.

And i

 have no mem’ry

Except

 for your kindness

And your

 pure love for me.

 

It all

 could’ve been different.

I just

.  want to know you.

Your Latest Promise #30in30 #make30 #poetry

Thanks to Effusion Designs for the photo.

You serve me hot dogs

On a paper plate.

The ketchup looks

Like dripping blood.

 

I eat deliberately,

Thinking solely of

Your latest offering

Your latest promise.

 

Why should I hope?

(Because I want it.)

Why should I consider?

(It’s all I ever wanted.)

 

Your love is the carrot

Dangling out of reach

That I’ve been chasing after

For these sixteen odd years.

 

But now I question

Why I race

Why I chase

After your promises

After your tease

After your lies

After your love.

 

It’s only just a carrot.
