"philosophize"
you figure

well i can't figure
out the difference be-
tween twelve and one,
why not thirteen?
at least buy me a drink first,
i'm done.
fun . . .

"rationalize"
you reckon

well i can't reckon
what i can't think
and if i'm being honest
i think it's oversimplifying it
to call ontology
a reckoning,
just saying . . .

"satisfied"
you suppose

well i suppose we could have been 
if you + i 
had about five days
and the motivation
to haul myself and
those boxes labeled,
'still alive'
down from my mother's place
up to that new apartment 
on fifth and king street,
or was it queen . . .

you know what i mean

has such a good scheme and flow...and leaves so many unanswered questions...if only i could unpack my old baggage, and fill my heart with new belongings...she may be one of them...but how tough it is to move on.

I love this poem Hailey! The rhyme scheme and rhythm felt almost lyrical in my head as I'm reading it. I feel the raw emotion this poem conveyed, thanks for sharing another amazing poem!

Definitely an interesting phenomena of words. It's like a stream of conscious thought that flows together in a very peculiar way that we can't exactly understand, but we know what the overall meaning conveys. Thanks for the lovely read ^^
