Limbo - Poem by Je'free Y .
I am not the twister of your arm,
Not the electrocardiogram that monitors
If your heart is beating hundred times
Faster on our scheduled nights together.
Patience has taught me to be the best
Version of myself with the mastery
Of acceptance, tolerance, of pure love
In nurturing your wings of freedom.
We like playing with words, like Boggle,
Solving puzzles, playing hide-and-seek,
Soaring two miles upward, one mile down -
Forever immature kids who see finality as a ghost.
You have been frightened by divorce stories,
Annulments, relationships like prison;
Simultaneously, you have seen growing old alone
As one hell of a scary phantom.
I am unsure how long I can love an unsure heart
That has made me a ticking robot in bed,
On the verge of self-destruction, maxed out.
Let me stop lingering in gray realms like this.
In between lovers and friends, forbidden and not,
I have emerged as the poet of all your poets;
And you, the Venus of all my muses
Am I a mere cameo character in your fairytale?
I will keep boring myself with meaningless kisses
‘Til you are excited enough by their profoundness -
Maybe by tomorrow, maybe yesterday, or never.
Soul mates in us must still be lost in limbo.
If seeds grow to fruits, caterpillars turn to moths,
Then our spark has no limit to its brilliance.
Keep it aflame in a world wanting it extinguished.
Temporary beneficiaries, do we remain this way?
