Night Poems – Vol. 2

You want to hear
why it won’t work?
Sure,
why not.
I feel like
hurting someone tonight.

You take things
too seriously. Like glass
orbs out of shoeboxes,
instead of just
shoes.

I can’t even begin to imagine
someone who pays that much
attention. You’re too
dedicated to the cause. You are
prepared to go the whole way
and nothing scares me more than old age,
more than a bridge I can’t cross back.
You’re one hell of a bridge though,
I’ll give you that.
Spanning years of tears
but we all have to drown
someday.

But mostly it’s because
you care.
I don’t think my heart can hold as much love
as I need for you.

    This is almost like a conversation and perhaps I’m thinking could have been. I agree with Sarah, I like the honesty.
