Could We Ever Be

Another day, another line to a different story
Laughable, does it really matter
It's just a melting pot day
everything just runs together, time slipping by a little faster
a little more than usual
And although the human body is said to warm
I'm shivering, shaking cold
not from the weather, not from the cool wind
I'm used to the elements, seventeen years of living has made it easy to bear
I've been cold for weeks, weak for weeks, stumbling for weeks, confused for weeks
Remembering, I guess is the only reason I have
a sad September I guess only for me
It was two weeks to the day
I had someone stumble into my life, someone I had no knowledge of
someone who was shrouded in my ocean of ignorance, ocean of infatuation
I will admit, I can admit, I admit
I fell in love with those soft eyes and dreamt of them on an endless night
One fatal kiss became my lasting fatality
since the next day the world twisted out of my favor
Lucky is just not the word for me anymore
I am anything but focused, everything but awake
haunted, I only wish it was the resolution
yet it would be false; it wouldn't be the right answer
Maybe I'm just falling, falling out of everything
every possibility those soft eyes had me believing we could be
but then again raises the question
Could we ever be...could we ever be...

Poem of the Day

poet Helen Hunt Jackson

The month of carnival of all the year,
When Nature lets the wild earth go its way,
And spend whole seasons on a single day.
The spring-time holds her white and purple dear;
