Flabbergast - Poem by Edgar John Jackson

I have to dry these tears I have not cried
When I believed you were by my side
There was nothing to me that I could hide
But this feeling you have ever denied.

I am strongness when I am feeling so weak
I am understandable when I don’t speak
I am reasonble how when I have no my mind
I am nonessential now when it’s lined.

Decentrilize to cry, Decentrilize to die.

I’ve been well-intentioned to make you smile
I didn’t want you to flabbergast for a long while
I’ve been well-behaved to make you be un-sad
But now at the end I’ve made myself un-mad

I am a plaintiff to be judged by your mind
I am cowardly me in a dark rind
I am unfamiliar to spend my time where you are
I am a sham-battle to keep you away and far.

Favorable to give, Favorable to live.

I’ve been your relinquished-love to survive
You’ve been my unrequited-love to be alive.

I am a smart-aleck for your locked-closed-blame
I am a spell-binder for you un-spokenword
I am groundless-naïve voice expressing or being absurd
I am perilous-holy man to be or to call your name.

I am that sigh that whispers through your long night
I am that chill that freezes when you’re right
I am an out-and-outer when you have to stake all
I am sadly mistaken but I will never call.

Decentrilize to cry, Decentrilize to die.
Favorable to give, Favorable to live.
Decentrilize to cry, Decentrilize to die.
Favorable to give, Favorable to live.
