Peter Krisciunas

(Naperville, IL)


Since there isn't a word
that I have heard
that explains you
I thought I'd write a poem
that says nothing of you, rather
the paralyzing effect you have on me
I'ts more of a submission than
Anything, it's like
'Hey, I give'
And you keep paralyzin
Not even realizin, how
Easy you make it look -
You are a horizon,
Always there and never here
I think a horizon is
Just air with light or not enough of it -
So why do people love it?
Don't say because they can't
Have it
Because it's a destination
A crossover
And it returns only to go again
Unless there's something it
does when it's gone...
It disappears
That's an act, huh?
And to speak of it when it's
Gone - like 'man, that
was beautiful wasn't it? '
It's like you when your gone
And no one knows
Why I can't move -

Poem of the Day

poet Charles Stuart Calverley

He stood, a worn-out City clerk —
Who'd toil'd, and seen no holiday,
For forty years from dawn to dark —
Alone beside Caermarthen Bay.
