I would do better

alone in this world

with no one to speak to me,

leave me alone!

I just want some peace

can’t you see in my eyes?

I despise human speech,

it just takes too much time.

I don’t care if you sit there

and just shut your mouth,

you can be in my presence

but you need to learn how!

It shouldn’t be hard

to be silent for hours

but from my experience,

no one else has this power.

I just want to go

somewhere secluded,

where no one else knows

and everything’s muted.

-Me (4/25/12)

(Version 2 of this poem)

Looking up I reminisce

About how we once were:

The stars for us held mysteries,

Our gaze toward them was pure.

Looking forĀ Orion’s Belt

We searched enchanted skies,

We sought that simple line of three

With spellbound simple eyes.

Lying in the grass that night

How magical the sight

Of you and me and scores of stars,

And they our only light.

Lying next to you I felt

As if I’d found a home,

A timeless place of happiness;

We’d never be alone.

But then our spell was broken by

Those words I said to you.

I wish I hadn’t spoken them

But now what can I do?

Those words, though not by nature harsh,

Have kept us far apart

And kept us from the mysteries

Inside our starlit hearts.

And now it seems we’re back again

Before that night of stars

Doing as we should’ve done:

Becoming friends to start.

But this time we’ve no time to lose

So pray we get it right

For this could be our only chance,

The last chance, in our lives.
