I Know I Know

I Know I Know long poem

Photo by -Jeffrey-

After dinner protocol you kiss me on the cheek
Wrap your arms around me to remind me that you’re free
The taste of mint is in your kiss but your sweetness is in doubt
All those broken promises are draining all your clout

Where you were is where you are or someplace in between
Living all your fantasies while killing all my dreams
The distance is a blessing till the distance is a curse
You drive me up the incline till I decline in a hearse

We travel here, then over there, then back again once more
Figure eights and roundabouts then straight back to my door
You unload all your parcels on my shoulders till they break
Then turn around to walk away and slip out of my gate

yes I know what you said
but I know what you meant
yes I know what you meant
’cause we’ve been here before

I’m relieved but still can’t breathe as I step inside my door
I stand inside with half closed eyes to fall upon my floor
Rolling up but fetal down stare off to nowhere land
Counting all the memories ablowing in the sand

There’s quiet in the hallways but the quiet rings so loud
You’re not here but there you are now everything’s in doubt
Pondering my next move as my world spins round and round
Tossing all your baggage that I’ve carried pound for pound

Close my eyes to the bright lights still burning around the rim
Everywhere my solar flares are quickly burning dim
The ashes blur my vision but it’s really plain to see
All my senses brighten when you fade away from me

So fade away from me
Don’t fade away from me
So fade away from me
Don’t fade away from me
