Life along a horizon

It’s never been about

touch.

especially now-

when it can not be.


It is not about

feeling

more than feeling,

simply because

we cannot.


It’s easier

to wish,

harder to commit-

we know this.


But we have

chosen

commitment.


Oh it’s not lost on me

your patience.

The time you spend

Stitching up the tear

In your pants

From the rusty metal nails

That you lean against

At night.


The feeling of despair and

Forgottenness is too much

To accept

So you go back,

and go back

again.


I like how you defend me

When I do not-

Not because I cannot,

but because I am not


I like how you keep

me entertained,

and wondering,

dreaming and uncertain.


I like how I laugh because

Of you

and at times,

with you.


I've felt a smile from ear to ear

that makes my face feel too small

to express the joy you offer,

Like reading a poem

With your name written all over it.


It is simply too

complicated

now-

Commitment.

Knowing that one day

shall be faced

with a question

we cannot answer

until then.


Still, I choose to continue,

and continue,

with the uncertainty

of tomorrow,

without destination

or remorse,

but with the satisfaction of today,

and life along the horizon.

A blank room, a canvas. Three beds nicely tucked waiting for their next patients. Food comes in, cold sweaty steamed food. Half touched, the remains get tossed away. Cries spill out, without a single

This poem is pretty sweet. There's nothing like a good appreciation post, especially about a particular person. I hope that the person you meant this for -- if it was for someone certain -- read and enjoyed this
