Lovespeed Memory

Lovespeed Memory

A Poem by Jarvis, Kelly Jordan

I am sweating ice, a forlorn remnant of what once was nice. A stolen locket, lost to deep sharks, sunken, could not find it. I wait, until the time comes to pass, when I might fall in love with this again and, seek that which might never last---long enough to get my fill---to fill me up with something real. It is a corner store mid-night. A ghost with a flashlight. Distance, but a memory upon which to recall. I don't forget. It comes easy, to love and love again. Harder though, much harder, I lose a lover for a friend in a fight with no end, just circling around a ring. All is against me, all is a menace; but to find the meaning in a dream, is to find the wisdom gently hidden. It isn't for the enemy: it brings us to and fro for a clash and disperse, but for our own rights, we love, and try again to break a self inflicted curse. Only as a team, even when I insist you leave. Knowing we'd reunite the wiser, in time---what speed!?
