Someday, Maybe

Someday, Maybe

A Poem by stars are far

Someday, Maybe

Once upon a future day

You’re 60 and I’m 58

The world is pale and lame.

Everything around us is so

Electronic.

But we are, fresh.

You hold my hand in tenderness…

You kiss my cheek and taste it.

You sit on the chair facing me,

But I fly on the chair facing you.

 

Out of now where you smile.

And my heart clinches.

“I haven’t seen this smile in a while”

My heart whispers.

I am lost.

But I believe that you just found a piece of you.

 

I give you a lot of words.

Letters.

Poems.

I give you a life I once hid.

And I stare at a life I once,

Gave away.

And I don’t regret it.

I stare at you. For what feels like a century

And you sip off your cigarette.

“God, I miss that”.

 

You open the letters…

One by one.

Your eyes are opening wide.

You mouth is dropping down.

Your heart is beating fast.

 

And I’m falling in love again,

Just like that 18-year-old girl.

 

Who once fell in love with you.

And that love felt like a very deep well,

With no ropes and nothing.

Because now, she learnt how to swim and dive.,

But she couldn’t leave that well.

The poison inside it is so delicious,

The smell of the death there,

Is mesmerizing.

And because it’s YOU….

That’s life.

 

You closed the first letter,

Sip some of your coffee

Hold my hand

Take a breath

Look at my eyes…

Then proceed...

“Those letter suck” I say to myself.

But I wanted you to see the journey

Feel the journey

While I was trying to get out of you.

 

I end up convinced that inside you

Is not a bad place.

I feel good there.

I created my own room

And from time to time,

I look at you.

I allow myself to miss you.

I allow myself to write about you.

I give myself a break.

 

“ Am I a very bad person?”

You ask in a very low husky voice.

I say no.

And I mean it.

You look at my face.

Your heart wants an honest answer,

And I gave it to you.

 

you finished your coffee.

But coffee isn’t good for your health.

And being away from me,

Isn’t good for your health either.

I love you.

The words away from my mouth.

I love you.

They flow like water.

I love you.

They break.

I love you.

They heal me back.

I love you.

I pull my hand,

Shake yours.

And leave.

 

We agree to meet again,

In the same wreck place

At 12:00 pm…

I leave.

And you read my words.

 

I know my voice will echo in your head

And you will miss me.

But I have a home that I cant give away,

And you have a kid that you can’t betray.

I love you

I say it as I look at you for the last time.

You look at me.

Smile.

And you say you love me too.

 

I’m your reviver.

I’m the human part of you.

 

You read.

You feel.

Then go home.

And I miss you as I lay in bed that night

Reading a book.

Listening to some soft music.

Holding you in my arms,

Asking you to brush your teeth.

And loving you even more.

 

The end

oh my goodness ... your poem hooked me ... i was guessing and getting more emotionally involved in reading and the turn is perfect says i...thelights go on and the full tragedy of the scene hits me full impact ..i am curious about this line:
"Out of now where..." did you mean to say "now where"? ... i really like the poetic license you took if you meant to ...
i could not help but think of one of my favorite singers and this song of hers:

i do hope you have time to listen ..even if you already know the song ;) she passed not too long ago and i get chills every time i listen to her works ... love and peace Ms Stars! great stuff as always
