I don't usually do this...
I don't usually put out drafts of a piece I'm working on...but what the hay?
Believe it or not, I wrote the first two stanzas in five minutes and the third a day later in about 3 minutes. Inspiration is always tapping me on my shoulder but by the time I look up, it's gone.
How many millions of times have we said to each other, Have we said to ourselves - "I'm done."
And we screamed, scratched, clawed at the night
With either my fiery tears or your icy indifference
And with chasms wide
Passed by each other like strangers
And resented each other
How many million times more did we collide and connect
Like magnets pulled a part
And then set free to find each other
With an explosive
Marbles hitting tile floors
Shattering the stillness around us
How together or not
Apart or together
Between the two of us, as it concerned us
It seemed we were fulfilling scripture
Serving and sacrificing
Unconditional love clung to our words
Whether we mumbled or shouted them
Try as we may to cloak our lives in our own pride.
