A Constant New Fear

i have to love everything you hate
i don't have to let you know how he got away
i keep trying to forget the smell of his air
i don't have to tell you how the story went there
i've wanted to tell you since you moved back here
when texas grew far and our bodies drew near
i don't have to tell you why i love that song
why i made other plans and never bought a bong

i only can tell you some things

i sense your mood
i've sensed her hold on you
i love your name
i love your voice when you wake

i sense that you didn't know
and you'll never know
i understand what's in a name
and i feel the same

i'm not happy here
i need a constant new fear
and when i overcome
it's time for me to move on

don't get tired
i'll find you strength
please keep up
we'll find our strengths

Poem of the Day

poet Robert William Service

Just Home and Love! the words are small
Four little letters unto each;
And yet you will not find in all
The wide and gracious range of speech
Two more so tenderly complete:
