11:32 pm - A poem
I haven't written one I liked in a long time. The Delerium concert has done a lot to reconnect the pieces of myself that need to be connected for me to write good poems. That and the partial relief of stress and pressure from having actual job leads. This isn't one of my best I think, but I'm happy with it.
I dream you
memories of longing and loss.
I want you
underneath my skin, where
I've found you
countless times before.
Dreams of you
like a drowned man's dreams of the ocean.
Interlocked with you,
I've lost a piece of myself.
So many dreams,
and they all included you.
I hold a piece of you in myself.
It completes my thoughts like a ghost,
a cold caress of the past.
I learned you so well,
your death will not be your end.
Holding up your (my) broken fragment like a torch
a beacon and reminder to myself
of who you were.
