Push Against The Pull - Poem by Lance Uppercutt

To convince one of truth is to convince you're a fake
And to imply their lack of feeling an even graver mistake
It's my lopsided awkwardness of being internally awake
The sight of this parody of human they will take
Of a tired clown confused for soul's sake
While juggling love along side a pin and a cake

Isn't the point to want a love different from our own
To recognize their presence in the heart of our home
And take comfort in a distance not lengthened so large
To feel a heart so small emit such a charge
With an unusual love powered by unusual fuel
To make us not want to push against the pull

Fear and love fly my skies positioned so close
Love paths inland while fear struggles for the coast
To be old enough to honor your life of fear with a roast
And young enough to boast that you're high on love's dose
Now your stories are of real love and not of its ghost
So your time isn't wasted with it you made the most

Can an unlike mind shove the unwilling heart
When the giving signature is a much different part
Perhaps this is one I want more than fate will allow
Suck it up- be a man- don't dare cry now
And love's road not dead-end so cruel
Misleading another boy to push against the pull

No news of love today- better luck next life
To be cut by its scythe- and rot in its decay
Victimizing yet another willing fool
That tried in vein to push against the pull

    Brilliant poem Lance Uppercut. A dynamite billion tons exploding into a vale of flowers. Deep is your reach, and you hold so dearly and bloom so generously what you ask others to suck and keep. I loved it, like a bee I suck the nectar in your poem. Keep flooding. (Report) Reply
