You on top of me.


Despite my
varied escapades

despite the numbers
in my mind

the nights and
dawns

the drinks and
the see through glasses

the mirrors and
shadows

i keep telling myself
i have so many things
to do

but to forget you
and not miss you

is still not possible
i need time

more time more
time

to make you
fade

what a night
on such a short hour

i never regret
though that once

i had you
on top of me.

Poem of the Day

poet William Butler Yeats

WINE comes in at the mouth
And love comes in at the eye;
That's all we shall know for truth
Before we grow old and die.
I lift the glass to my mouth,
