Poem (so proud of my baby!!)

New Beginnings, Old Impressions

“Write me a poem.”

She said.

I say
Inspire me first.

Find a way
To keep your essence flowing
Through my veins

Give me a reason
To fasten you to my mind
And eject you recklessly with my pen

But then,
Six days later
Your absence affected me
More than a spark
Lighting a dim fire
Remembering holding hands
Under a flickering TV screen
Massaging any hint of loneliness away
With my fingertips

Cool, calm and collected I was
On the bed
Your back to my chest
Still couldn’t contain the curiosity
In my mind
(Supposedly a self-inflicting disease)

I was just trying to feel you
Bless your mind
And capture your heart
One day

But the chance started to fade…

Now new beginnings define
Both our lives:
You want real love
While I want some well-deserved attention

But maybe I placed myself too high
To be knocked to a level so low

So now I watch the blood dripping
From pride lost,
A death of simple attraction.

(Rest in peace first impressions)
