Symmetry

Symmetry long poem

Photo by SimplySteff,


Someday across the sea
you will tell a story
About this time
And knowing me
Without a name
But all the same
Air brushed in a tone
That paints me sad
And bitter
And alone
Too bad

In 5000 words or so
The things we tasted
How we were
Who got wasted
Where
And how in haste
I left you here
In a tragic state
The week before
Your mind was clear

And I will tell a story, too
About a person
That I knew
A person in a mess
One Who
Could not confess
Could not know truth
Or love
Or tenderness

And yet
These stories share
One thing that’s fair
That we made love
While we were high
Two years
Without another try
The truth is never clear
Just why
Regretting

I feared you
Cold
As you appeared
And felt so old
And heard
Such toxic words
And yet
I still believe
That card you dealt
Was up your sleeve

Perhaps you needed love
But blocked it
Wanted me to stay
To mock me
While I failed away
Tragic that I needed you
To fail to be plutonic, too
Symmetrically in debt are we
No friendship
And no sodomy

And no forgetting
