THIRD CHANCE?

THIRD CHANCE?

A Poem by Dreamer

Heart pure as gold

(Cliches make my soul sick)

Look though the glass window,

Discounting the stain.


Hold your perception of me 

At the peek,

Rocking precariously

Destined to fall 

Lest I maintain this stray jacket (arms unsettled)


First chances- bless untarnished views.

Second chances- kiss the sinless sinner. 

Third chances- based on my lack of care, do not exist.


AT LAST, THE SMUDGE SHOWS!


Forgiveness is not a symptom of forgetfulness

I'll have you know-

Its quite alright not to drink poison- even when the bottle dares, "Drink me"

Besides, my peripheral vision is strong enough.

A third chance?

"No thank you,

Still sick from seconds."

Instead I'll leave you in my blind spot

For a lesson and a laugh I'll eventually gain. 

Opposed to this unpredictable play and uncertainty.

And "chances" that seek to run into infinity.

Though I may not necessarily agree with the content of the poem, I cannot deny that the words are well penned and beautiful, whereas one who agrees would nod and be quite content, this fills me with a small sadness. To be completely honest, I give many chances, mainly because I only ever allow myself to know those who I know deserve the chance to know me (not being cocky or anything, but a person has standards for those he befriends - moral ones that is) so when a chance has to be given, it's given to those deserving of one, two, three, infinity (and those you make a mistake on don't get the first :P)
I hope am making sense. As I said, beautifully written, and spurs a slightly depressed response from me, and the fact that it pulls at my emotions means that to me, it is brilliant.
Another great poem.
