Driver’s Ed, a Poem

I can’t sever my ties with you yet, just allow me to love you, a bit longer, please!!! Translated…

This is, the Unreturned

Miniature Version of, that Map of the First Love

I Was Once, a Slow Car, Driving According to Your Signs

Reverse, Park, Drive Forward Bumpily

The S Driving Paths, Very Well Rehearsed查看來源圖片navigateing through this obstacle fcourse of love…photo from online…

Those Spells Which Had, Stopped Working Due to the Twists & Turns Now

Pretended I was Changing Lanes, Tested Out the Safe Distances Too

Allowing that Invisible Crosswalk to Get Between the Two of Us

Brake! Don’t Park on the Lines, Ahhhhhhhhhhh, for a Very Long Time

I’d, Not Wanted to, Signal, All the Green Running Men, Stand Perfectly Still

I’m Still on that Driving Range in Your Dreams, Practicing Repeatedly

This, is what stuck felt like, isn’t it? The person you were in love with, had already, moved on, and you still couldn’t, because you’re still, too emotionally attached or whatever, and, this is going to get harder, because you still had YET to deal with that final goodbye, severing the emotional ties with whoever you’d, broken up with…

Optics, a Poem

Having someone ELSE there, AT the center of YOUR universe, this, is not going to end well at A-L-L! Translated…

We’d Polished Those Lens

Calculated the Curves of Language

Waited, for a Specific & Destined Time

That Light that Traveled Here from Afar

At that Specific Right Angle

Passed Through Those Layered, Transparent Hearts

Burning Me, in that Void, Suspended

That Combustible Focal Point

So, this, is what it feels like, with someone at the center of universe, because you were, lured in love, and yet, after the love is gone, what will you be LEFT with? Oh yeah, I forgot, UTTER DARKNESS, and you’d become, a sure part, of that darkness, because you’d lived your life around that other individual, and, it’s NEVER good, with someone ELSE at the focal points of your own lives…

The Last Trip We Took Together…

That last trip we took together, do you remember it? Of course N-O-T! You’d, left us behind a long, long, long time ago. That last trip we took together, it was, our last draw, the final attempt, to save our marriage, and yet, I’d, realized, for certain, that we shouldn’t, stay married together, and, that last trip we took together, turned out, to be the beginning of our divorce!

That last trip we took together, I can vaguely recall the scenes, we went to this beautiful place (that much I know!!!), we thought that this was what our marriage needed, a vacation for just the two of us, without our parents, our relatives or friends, and children, just us two, to sort things through…

And yet, that last trip, was like that first domino that led to the tumbling down of the rest of the lined-up straight dominoes! That last trip we took together, what happened to us? Why did we, fall out of love? I mean, our love was, supposed to last for a lifetime, wasn’t it? So, how come it didn’t, huh???

That last trip we took together, well, glad that was over, huh? ‘Cuz I’m no longer married to you, and, I’d never been, happier in my life, on that very last day of this vacation for two, which led to my life of one!!!

On Forgiving Those Parents of Ours, for Damaging Us When We Were Still Too Young to Fight Back…

Don’t open your chest up let the butterflies out burn the velvet gloves and seek to trust hands held over hands in circles dancing to the gravy of secure claim Don’t risk dissolution by the marble hands of your own family it never gets easier a little death upon a little death pursed words kissing […]

Love’s Mistakes, at EVERY Corner of My Life…

Love’s made, MORE than one single mistake, in the corners of my life…

Love’s mistakes, at EVERY corner of my life, and, it’d become, so hard, to DODGE them, even if I’d, dodged this one on this last turn of the corner, at the next turn of this corner comin’ up, there’s, another one, of love’s INFAMOUS mistake, waiting to catch me off guard!

查看來源圖片like this, without a single CLUE, of what I’m going to, BUMP into…

Love’s mistakes, at EVERY corner of my life, I’m just, sick AND tired, of allowing love’s mistakes to get to me, oh, how I wish, I could just, do away with love completely, but I can’t, it’d, infested itself, into this life of mine, and, like that hard-to-cure skin condition I’d had (due to how hot and how wet the weather here was!), it just, won’t heal up completely, no matter what sorts of medication I’d taken for it.

Love’s mistakes, at EVERY corner of my life, it’s just, not hard to see, that love is, on my CASE here. It’d given me troubles, since BEFORE the beginning of my life, and, frankly, I’d, had it with love now!!!

 

 

Our Lives Together Became a Work of Fiction…

And, unfortunately, happily ever AFTER didn’t come as the ENDING!!!

Our lives together became a work of fiction, because, unlike how I’d, originally thought we’d belonged to and with one another, boy, oh boy, oh B-O-Y, was I, DEAD wrong!

like this???  Not my photograph…

Our lives together became a work of fiction, as it should, and, it’d also turned into, a suspense novel, with all the elements of MURDER, and all that good stuff too.

Our lives together became a work of fiction, that, is how “we” (oh wait a second, there was NEVER one!) ended, before we’d ever even gotten the chance to meet, face to FACE, and, this, is a horror story, that didn’t end well for you, but as for me, I’d already found the happily EVER after (plus a day extra!) I damn well deserved here.

or all of these???  Still NOT my photograph…

Our lives together became a work of fiction, we were NEVER supposed to meet (or rather, we met!), and, just like the plots of all fitting stories, with a beginning, a middle, and an end, I’d walked from the beginning of this work of fiction our lives together became, into the middle, and now I had, finally reached, the E-N-D!

El F-I-N!!!  (that’s “the end” in Spanish, for those of you interest in knowing that is…)

One Day, I Will See Us…

yup, it’s, EXACTLY like this!!!  Photo from online…

One day, I will see us, for who we truly are, without ALL the flashes, the thrills, and the spotlights, just plain you and I…

One day, I will see us, after the love had, faded, after so many washes it’d, endured, we will finally, show our selves to each other, but until then, I guess, we’ll simply just, live blindly, with the façades of love, hovering over us both.

One day, I will see us, without the hi-def colors, when everything became black and white, AND shades of gray too, and maybe then, I’ll realize, that this ain’t love at all, but until the day comes, I’ll always be, that girl with stars in her eyes, dreaming of you, as her Prince Charming (more like a TOAD if you ask me!!!).

One day I will see us, but, I can’t, because, the realities of this god DAMN life of mine, hadn’t quite, set in yet, and, don’t know when, it’ll, set in, but, I got a feelin’, that, it’ll be, sometime soon, ‘cuz lately, I’d been, feelin’, kinda awful, with you around………

One day, I will see us, but, I still can’t, because I’m still, BLINDED, by these HUGE headlights of L-O-V-E, you do realize, how driving to someone else’s headlights CAN blind you, right???
