Un-able


Do you know what it’s like to be un-able
What happened to me is un-forgive-able
The pain I felt was un-bear-able
What you did was un-think-able
And what you said was un-change-able
”Why” I asked, you said is un-explain-able
I think it’s just un-answer-able
The fear I have is un-avoid-able
The thoughts I have are un-beat-able
The troubled water is un-bridge-able
The truth is far from approachable
Pressure I feel now is un-describe-able
Things he wants from me are un-allow-able
What to do is un-decide-able
What he wants is un-deni-able
The fact that he knows is un-believe-able
I wish he was more un-derstand-able
Because of the un-forgive-able
Normal, to me is un-know-able
How many times it happened, un-count-able
The payback I’ll get is un-imagine-able
Run if you want, your un-hide-able
I’m known to be un-predict-able
But to you, I’ll be un-touch-able
Trust me cuzo, I’m capable
What I’ll do to you is un-name-able
Your scar will be un-remove-able
No violence, I’ll be un-assail-able
But you’ll know what’s it like to be un-able…promise

poet Li Po

Amongst the flowers I
am alone with my pot of wine
drinking by myself; then lifting
my cup I asked the moon
to drink with me, its reflection
and mine in the wine cup, just
