Natural Phenomena


If you walk away
from me,
There will still be sunrise
and sunsets in my life

Stars will shoot thru the midnite sky
and clouds will collaborate about the rain
I will wake each morning to the sound of birds
singing

Days will last the usual 24 hours
and the seconds will turn into minutes while I miss you.

If you stop loving me,
your sweet nothings will
no longer taste sweet
and my happy endings
will cease being happy
or even possibly
happily ever after.

If you leave me,
I may love again, but not like
I loved you
because loving you was a natural phenomenon like yawning
or hurricanes in the Caribbean
and babies being born in the early hours of the morning, just because they can.
I would simple devolve
and revert to being me
alone,
without you,
Unnaturally.

Poem of the Day

poet Pablo Neruda

I want you to know
one thing.

You know how this is:
if I look
at the crystal moon, at the red branch
of the slow autumn at my window,
if I touch
