Your Creation - Poem by Timmy Tubbs

You spilled my pride and filled it with guilt
You flew me to your special place and danced
Then set me down in front of a freightliner
Maybe on accident
And as it closes I crack a smile
Puffing my chest at death, I can still brag
You were mine for a while

I failed you
Those words echo off my canyons
The decibels multiply after each bounce
I just wish you could see my eyes today
You used to see right through them
But now you wouldn’t get past my lashes

The varnish you left on my skin is shaved off
A substance I hate to part with
A substance stronger than a closed fist
Lately, the remains flake off under a light mist

I turned my life into a construction zone
I picked every piece into tiny bits
Analyzed then overanalyzed all of it
The pieces mixed of you were soft with a little oak
I’m connecting them in an uncanny way
I soldered the oak to steel
And somehow, I can finally float

A thank you would suffice
But would neglect the last holes
So I will ride with my new pride
And every revolution of the pedal
Gives me new dreams of you
As it keeps me in stride
But I still feel your hammering on my inside

Thank you and here is my goodbye
My bicycle helped me to forget you
We summoned a new blue moon
To pull my heavy tides
