chanced chances

Posted: February 13, 2012 in confusion, hope, love, me, poetry

banging my head upon your heart
i begged you’d let me in

nobody answered, nobody stirred
i lost you, my friend

i saw your photo mentally
every night you’d maraude my dreams

pressed by skewed reality
my tender heart’s midnight screams

i moved my lips in silent words
my eyes looking to the core

smells of resignation
my truths shredded ever more

a flick, a glimmer, elusive hope
i catch your reflection in my mirror

so tangible, so concrete
as if you were right here

and you were, inside my heart
banging on my mind

i needed to step out, and so did you
escaping the closeness inside

now here we stand, on blank canvas
white washed, weak & thread bare

one deep breath, a thousand heart beats
simultaneous uttering “i care”
