Lukewarm Tea

A Poem by YouoweYoupay
"

A cup of lemon-mint tea is only satisfying when it's hot on a cold evening.

I'm so Goddamn sick

Of the same drama flick

 

I sputter sighs here and there

Wrestle no one but myself

Over quotes of dark and fair

 

I'm so darn sick

Of circles and lines

Of hazy chipped signs

Of adorned chants

Once called divine

 

I'm sick, I'm sick

Of vain anticipations

Just to be sweeped again

With the tide of Californication

 

I'm f*****g sick

Of talking to boulders

And a bamboo stick

 

I'm honestly sick

Of half-hearted attempts

To smother your self contempt

And sarcastic schemes

A new act through the same theme

 

I'm sick

Of your holly manuscripts

And your Godly lit aura

That shows beneath your eyes

Arousing one thousand why's

 

I'm tired

Of slow-dancing

Through papers and ink

Dimmed by the twilight

That never blinks

 

I am sick

Of learning how to count

The color strokes

That do not count

 

I have grown ill

Of apologizing

For dreaming

 

I'm sick

Of wrenching the corners

Of my face into one grin

Staying awake in the night

To keep my guard higher

 

I'm sick

Of drying spilled oil paint

Mistaking a tie for a harness

Of having to admire a Saint

Mistaking caution for slyness

 

I'm sick

Of huffing at the non-existent steam

Of a lukewarm fill of tea

Of having to supress the scream

 

Or seeing rolling eyes

At that I have confessed:

 

That I am sick of being sick.

This is poetry. Type of poem needed to be read a few time. I like the repetition of the words. Making the point loud and clear. So many lines stood out in this poem. Last line made the poem complete. Thank you for the outstanding poetry.

I agree with Coyote...this is so sublime! This is a piece that gives poetry a good name==> this is the reason i write- to try to achieve this level of communication...this level of entertainment- this level of metaphor effortlessly. This is magnificent work my friend...this was my favourite line:

"I'm tired
Of slow-dancing
Through papers and ink
Dimmed by the twilight
That never blinks"...

There was such a streamlined cohesion between the stanzas and plot progression that the piece just flowed from start to bottom. The words had so much to say than their basic meaning - whether intended or not (i'm guessing it was intended) i applaud you for your wisdom and wonderful words...

I'm truly lucky to have read this piece.

Great stuff!!
