I Will Not Write About A Poem Where You Can Relate - Poem by Antonio Liao

i will not write a poem
where you can relate
because it will
be painful
and i do not like
you to take
the pain

the pain
you have now
will be too much to bear
and if i add another dose of pain
from these lines i am afraid that you may not be able to take it

instead i will write a poem
where everything will be strange to you something that
will not make you remember something that will make you wonder
about a world which you have not ever known something that strikes a

note in your heart
that awakens you and brings you a new day
that presents to you some pages of the sea and tell you a story

not about us, that which takes you at the top of the mountain and lets
you see some clear skies, a full orange moon, a dark blue horizon something

that makes you wish upon another star that makes your heart
stronger than ever that which makes you live and never again think of death

because i love you
