B.B. Loring

(October 24,1995 / Maine, United States)

I Walked Because You Walked

The little steps I take;
Forcing my muscles to work
Through this newfound lethargy;
As I might live like this forever,
I take pleasure in the thought of you;
That you are walking too
And all of the writers
who make me wonder
If I am really in this room
Or somewhere else;
Beside you; but reading about him
Sometimes I miss him
With a longing
Just as strong as my love for you
And a single tear might slide down my cheek;
Then I am only left with my shock
When I realise,
that I have done this once before
Slept in this cold room
Beside God himself;
Sometimes the devil
And wondered if dying
Would make me fall out of love
Or would I love you still;
Even further from your touch
Behind a locked door of glass
Forced to watch you always;
Without blinking, or the hiatus of sleep;
Never even the slightest opportunity
To feel your breath on my skin
Like I might here; on the earthly plane
Though my life would be much the same
Me being here, and you way over there
If this is what death will be like
Loving you must not be different than dying

Poem of the Day

poet Edgar Allan Poe

Kind solace in a dying hour!
Such, father, is not (now) my theme-
I will not madly deem that power
Of Earth may shrive me of the sin
