Dear Readers, Welcome to my blog! I'm glad you're here. Most writers are introverts. We work alone and seldom hear from...

Drowning

People don’t change
They dance around the consistency
of who they are destined to become anyway,
the way we did together

Sway, and I danced with you,
and we pretended for an instant
that we were not afraid,
that together we were invincible

God, we were stunning
Shocking, like a train wreck
Surprising, like a tragedy,
Shattered, we were beautiful

So take me now, again
Grab my hands, I’ll clutch yours
Drown with me, lover
in gorgeous deceit

And, as your lungs burst,
When the fear flares,
don’t forget to hold tight,
Because together, we’re invincible

  1. I read this fast,a nd then slowed down and thought first one thing and then another.

    And then I thought of the philosopher.

    And I cried.

    I'll take that as a compliment.

    Thanks, as always, for reading with me.

  3. Yes. It's a compliment. And a refutation to any ideas you have about problems with poetry.

    I still don't consider myself a poet, but I'd be lying if I didn't admit to liking this one.

  5. It's very important to allow ourselves to take credit for things we know we've done well. To stand up and say yes. This is good.
