Veteran (Jello Feet)

Veteran (Jello Feet)

A Poem by Wynter Page
"

...I stood on jello feet.

"

Just need to know you're there,

want to feel your prescence in the air.

Need the haunting, so I won't be alone.

Lost and divided, my soul left to roam.

Looking constantly for the missing pieces,

finding only the drunken leeches

who latch on and drain personality.

"Need to conform, that's being free!"

they said, "No need to eat,

Only brings defeat". I stood on jello feet.

I buckled and lost the blooming flowers.

I lost the perfume, lost the power.

Still looked for the path leading to you.

You are the future. Time is standing by you.

Seconds tick by as I tried to fly.

Can't walk on jello feet, no breath enough to try.

Losing my religion for countless heartbreak,

cross my legs for virginity's sake.

Who wants a veteran, a battered soldier?

Who wants something so imperfect to hold so dear?

I just need to know that you're still in the back,

before I totally fall through the cracks.

And even though yours are new, mine are old,

I can't erase heartrates, I've always been sold.

This just riddles in agony --- the intent I presume --- as I read this verse...the usage of the rhyme does not hinder...as I sometimes see here at the WC...but this work has a reflective voice in the entirety...you can hear it...pierce you as the lines generate that feel...
