Que fue el beso del final?

Tag

darkness

Feels like more

you said, “we should think about this….”

cos, it’s all wrong

this thing, we’re doing with each other

and that it is

 

this should mean less

than what it does right now

but why does it feel like more?

why does it feel like everything

and nothing at the same time

why does this make me feel like me for the first time?

 

Stolen moments, in the darkness,

where we can be who we really are, for a second

will I feel the same if they were not? stolen?

and you and I were

just two ordinary people, being happy with each other

or will normality mean

we would have to deal with

each other for a much longer time, out there in the light

where ordinary things happen…

 

and then, will we lose the words?

the yearning?

the torment?

the love?

and be forced to be other than who we are with each other?

You’re right “we should think about this….”

Monsters

There’s a darkness

That will not m/end

Swiveling, inside

Faster and faster and faster

And you can almost miss me sitting here

The real me, I mean

Through all this talk and laughter

The spinning –that- just doesn’t stop

This darkness that owns me

And, that I own

Is consistently around

A shadowy companion

Tethered to my being

Always mocking my attempts

at switching on the lights

crawling out of the abyss

the familiar depths

which have become

safe, comfortable

and mine….

Demons

You need not go
Into that darkness alone
I’ll come there, with you
Here’s my hand
Take it
There’s no other way
You’ll feel less alone

I’ll go into that darkness alone
You needn’t come there with me
Don’t hold out your hand
I won’t take it
There’s no other way
With you here – I  feel more alone

These last minute morsels of affection
Still confuse me
And then I remember
That you have let me walk alone in the light for so many years
So why not in the darkness ?

I’m so used to this solitude
Darkness or light
With you or without
I’m walking ahead
Can’t let you -holding out your hand-
Hold me back
There’s so much pain in your affection and
so much comfort
In this unknown darkness
It’s compelling me

I can’t look back
