Intimate with Vows; Broken By Another
Highway. Three hours total.
Talking. Past mistakes & the future.
Vows unbroken. Divorced, but still loving.
The past forgiven.
Months of crying. Keys jingle, doors open.
Months of wanting.
Power off phones.
Locking our home. Lights out, messages ignored.
A long embrace.
A leap of faith. A kiss, passionately.
Hand in mine…this time.
Happy glands together.
Slow and steady. An act with a desperate meaning.
An act of feelings.
Eyes of a lover. Two bodies in tune to one another.
Warm & fuzzy; perfect timing.
Wish for a son.
Wish for a daughter. Something to hold this together.
Hope for a forever.
Loving. Cherishing the moment, while it lasts.
Reality. We let them ruin everything.
We are the prophets the world hasn’t caught up with yet. The living, stuck among produced dead, and we who love most are chastised for being poor. As if that is what makes us our own. While the rich sip Martini in suburban home, emotions hidden behind pharmaceutical skin, we dream so much it hurts. Our ideas keep them happy in their ancestor-gifted, God-given, monetary comfort and love, but behind every dollar bill our sweat and blood.
What a delusional master plan
searching for meaning in a world left
To a pious empire of lewd breasts
and wine-stained breath
Titillating sex ordered heart theft
all living here belong among
“Fuck it, I’ll be an alarm clock then”.
