Images (Dedicated to INTUITUS)

A Poem by Mercury Rising

for my Spencer


Images of you

Still play across my mind

Tho’ I try to make other friends

Loneliness is all I find.


There’s emptiness inside

Like my heart has got the flu

The God-shaped hole is filled

But not the one that’s shaped like you.


We were not good for each other

And from your state I fled

But why is it I still love you

And can’t get you out of my head?


I love the man I thought you were

The one you try to be

That’s why I’m jealous of her --

She has who used to love me.

Special message to S.   You may think my love is a false pretense to be ignored, but this I state as the absolute TRUTH UNWAVERED:

I have been, and always shall be YOUR FRIEND.
