Prognosticate

Prognosticate

A Poem by Alisa Js

I really need to know
this time,
need to believe this could really be 
mountains more than a fading facade 
behind some desperate dream 
of half-willed shots
thrown around 
in that proverbial dark
missing one hypothetical 
contingency after contingency, 
piled in the sky 

we need this battle plan to stand! 
for once.
for real.
will you wake up now and be more aware 
enough of the fumbling and muttering 
it's getting beyond old, you know?
when I'm the one who is living this level of stress
stomach churning
24 hours without end
this bridge can't begin
with nothing holding the wind's wild chance 
we couldn't stop
even if we wanted to
tell me again
you will never let go,
it will all work out.
tell me again
tell me like you mean it
make me believe...

Thank you! I will be by soon.
love has its risks, has its uncertainties - and if loved ones truly love us, they will go out of their way to offer us assurance that they care and will be with us all the way of the journey, no matter how rough the journey would be

This reminds me so vividly of a gorl in England when I was a university student who sent me a mesage. Basically she was painting her line or "making a stand" as you put it and demanded to know if there was any real substance to our relationship. Being young and stupid, I couldn't think of an answer and remained silent for several days until I received word that her father had died. I immediately wnet to the florist and found a floral presentation I liked that had the printed message, "You will be missed" and sent it on its way. After that she refused to accept my phone calls or communicate in any way because the florist had delivered the flowers to her instead of the funeral parlor.
Sorry for the long discourse but your work brought back that experience. Concerning your poem . . . I liked the sensitivity and the sincerity of the sense of longing and yet the resolution of maintaining dignity. An excellent work, profoundly expressed.

The sense of urgency is very real, no doubt the words are a cry for validation. Last call.

No kidding around. Even if you do not mean it, tell me like you mean it. Make me believe.

The pain of contingency. What to expect in this random universe.

Resonates completely. Well done.

-- ohhhhh... this is an intensely moving heartsong, lovely alisa... -- and this poem is so rich in unique images that i might end up quoting the entire poem... -- but still, i must mention some of my favourite ones...

-- the entire "fading facade" image... and all the instances of alliteration...

-- contingencies piled up in the sky...

-- the bridge

-- this piece of poetry describes the complexities of a yin and yang equation using images that give a reader like me a million insights into what might happen if one person is feeling insecure and there are valid reasons behind that feeling...

-- it's great seeing a new post in your universe of verse...i've been waiting to read ya...
