Alejandro Torres

Rookie (12/24 / Spfld, Ma)


Shattered and fragmented
Thoughts were scattered illusions
Blown away by the wind
The thousand miles I crossed
To out run my demons

But each mile is an eternity
When I know there’s an angel calling
And all the unknowns
Just make eternity
Two lifetimes
Too long

And the days pass
While I slumber
You could watch over me
If we were things of legend
But we’re just mortals
With immortal shine
Lingering in our eyes

I watch the pen flow
I look as the words form
There’s colors forming your picture
In the forefront of my mind
And the music plays
You dance a ballet
You don’t know the steps to

The beauty of fragment thought
Like when we use fragment words
To describe bigger words
And the beauty
Of our common personalities
Is we’re okay with that

And I look at my hands
While I think of you
Vascular tanned long structures
Random thought process
Whether you’d like them
Or not

Want to listen to your voice again
As I look up at the stars
But youre too far away to know

Im wishing on them tonight

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Edward Housman

The time you won your town the race
We chaired you through the market-place;
Man and boy stood cheering by,
And home we brought you shoulder-high.
