Without Proper Practice

Without Proper Practice

A Poem by kera moondust

And now all I am to you, is just a series of near misses. That almost intersected but never did.


I am slowly falling through this space time

One with early morning hours

And inhaling this city’s natural


And the only thing I can make out

                In the distance

Are illuminated screens

Feeding into the minds of the illing public


I can assure you

Though my eyes are gouged out

All the same

These telescopic fingers of mine

Search the universe for your friendly eyelashes to



You should know

That these oceanic arms

Are still learning how to squeeze


In just the right places             

Despite this distance

And I’m sorry

                          If these arms don’t squeeze you tight enough


I’ve never been good at the art of

                      Holding someone


It’s always been way to much weight

For these arms to bare

Despite the pressures of

                      Atlantic depths

I have become so accustomed too


And now there are more than just mountains

Separating us

Because I crash landed somewhere on


And though there are sky scrapers here

Like nothing I or you have ever seen

There are no radio signals

For me to tell you

                      How deeply I may

                             Or may not feel

For you


And worse still

I do not have anyone's eyelashes

To practice my plucking

Or body to practice my holding


I guess I’m just your series of near misses
