I Enjoy You Still

I Love You Continue To

I love you still.

Who can really say
it wasn’t enough ‘then’
as soon as the quota anticipated
is often condemned becoming The Judge
by The Jury of its needed-sum
found in the after that minute,

A minute which has passed away by
the just-then
like a bolt of lightning speeds past
a match factory’s malfunctioning
lightning pole construction?

Some will say it absolutely was a true blessing
that factory ended up being conserved,
other people will admit that its having burned down
the fire department was a greater loss,
specifically on per night of 4000
successful swings and 1 neglect.

There is a shade-sliver
of a disgruntled god in all people…

It really is enough to make united states both Inn-keeper,
Demolition operator, Tenant and Contractor
all-in-one evening (or at dawn
if you should be a morning individual.)

To “maintain your eye on your ball.”
The baseball this is the exact same model of your eye,
however is retina and student less,
that is stitched together
and wound for winding’s sake (?)

I have watched things became thingy-er.

I’ve witnessed the fluidity of relationship
erased away
because of the paper tearing,
classic desk scratching,
blunted eraser associated with mystical
Time Never Ever Told,

That ticking whoever source is mimicked
in the conscience-lifespan of bombs,
the lateness of conscience in a lifespan
assessed by simply Today
as well as the lifespan of a conscience later,
which can be so often thought as endless…

Can you forgive me personally for the love
I possibly could perhaps not propagate because our
area’s undetermined boarders,
fence lines
whom kept united states independently awake during the night
with their winding up
of old barbed-wire,

the noises of rust flakes
holding down
on recently rolled aside wax report,

the breaking and crumbling up
of currently set cement corks
as well as the milling stirring blending
associated with ready made brand-new gypsum
therefore to land again
progressively and more,

Thus far regarding ourselves
the Earth alone simply gave up
all its promises to us
as someplace which could consist of
our dream’s annexing

And set united states free,
willy-nilly
into the wind of absurd severity,

Dances that raged and unbound
prisoners in united states more old versus
innovation of stores, dungeons
and faith?

Could you forgive the crying of an infant
just who cannot inform its story,
whom cannot express its industry of vision,
which cannot as it can
and is doing something different,

Some thing unbound but
ended up for a lifetime’s benefit;
let go into this globe
as a being which gathers
even when planting,

Which comes back home
with all the industry’s soil-fur
beneath its nails
as it features been successful in
crawling all the way so to
share with the witnessing of
its standing and walking
from its very own love for the first time?

We question inside nighttime
because I am lost.

I do not need to remind myself
of the directional confusion,
my bellybutton confesses everything,
on a daily basis,
every which means but loose,

Because a loosely spun together orb
cannot ever before merit a home run,
it cannot withstand adequate that preliminary
effect becoming rewarded its soaring freedom,
that success that not one can get,
that success that most see going overhead,
beyond their objectives
and ability to totally feel its
certain model of private privacy,

With regards to eventually lands
as an incognito famous world,
moves some
and recalls the hand
who past held its perfect stitches
against its callused lifelines.

Everyone loves you still.
