tales of something simple - poem: keeping apart

i believe

Rivers know this: there is no hurry. We shall get there some day.

all types of chaos

poem: keeping apart

You’ve got so many opinions but

you’ve never really believed in anything.

You don’t believe that

flowers gravitate toward the sun,

or lovers magnetize together in the weeping hours of a sunlit morning.

The difference in opinion didn’t keep us together,

it kept us apart.

You were the kindest

killing disease I ever had, and

given the chance I’d never want to cure it.

I’d rather dream with my eyes open in a bed I can’t sleep in,

during hours when I know she’s breathing next to you,

than believe in nothing.

I’d rather slip in the cracks of the cement in the sidewalk,

imperfections so wide I dance around them because one of these days

I’ll fall between.

Half the time I wish I knew where you were

but mostly I know you won’t come home,

because it isn’t where your heart is, it’s where your regret lies—

Familiar rain streaked cheeks and stone pierced feet knew

I could never have you.

I have a feeling you’d believe that.
