7 Days


No answers
only the cancer
My fault, a typo
no cancer
Just not a happy ever after
a loner
Who does that describe
What is the real definition of
'losing everything'
Everything that usually never evaporates
How is it possible
in 7 days
7 days of fighting
7 days of putting everyone else ahead
7 days of falling behind
falling behind to the back of the line
causes an uneasy blend of memories
I feel so sick
like I've been poisoned so deep
and here I am dying a slow, painful death
No, no
these can't be memories
these aren't memories
There is no happiness, only a well
Something only a baby of my height can call a home
Resisting a look back several lines later
reaching into the black
wishing for more time
knowing that time is nothing more than lost
it was never a virtue
Possibly
What's the definition for feeling alone
alone in the concept of mind
hoping for something in exchange
Impossible

Poem of the Day

poet Walt Whitman

ARM’D year! year of the struggle!
No dainty rhymes or sentimental love verses for you, terrible year!
Not you as some pale poetling, seated at a desk, lisping cadenzas
