These scars have washed

Away with clarity,

A daring change if pace

From baseless remorse.

Of Course,

What exists is not

Merely between me and my sins.


Torturing my heart

Sparked kerosene tears,

And rended my love encrusted sleeve

Free of sanity.

You had the decency

To treat as a human being.

Even as I martyred

My emotions;

For far fetched closure.


Never again.


In the now,

I am louder than ever.

No overplayed silence

Between self reliant misery

And misconstrued words,

But verbose joy.

Comatose sadness

Is brought to life by

Each happening.

These events,

On principal, read bliss.

The past,

A reverent satire,

Is that.

A musing

Of loosely based thoughts.

I am choosing to get lost

Admidst a new story,

Penned by you and I;

Entwined in the

Clearest bindings.


However,


Speculation

Contemplates the integrity

Of us as authors,

More so the drunkenly chain smoker;

Sober, for the first time in ages,

I interpret simpler meaning,

Appreciating every page

We craft.

Overall I liked your poem. It was dense in that there was enough meaning in most lines to have to wait, chew my food, and THEN swallow. Rushing through this piece can cause indigestion!<br />I did like how you gave a redemptive quality to your poem without seeming sappy & sentimental.

Dense it is... I tried to read this a few times before I myself, could slow down enough to "digest" the words. But once I did though... I found this poem to be profound It tells a whole story within the simple lines, I enjoyed it very much! Thx
