SOLILOQUY

SOLILOQUY

Did I find you

Or simply thought that I did?

Our impassioned craze

Was it love or was it chemistry?

Numb we were, shorn to the feel

Of pain, of past, and scars of melted wounds

*

Because we found something,

Or rather, because we thought we did,

 When we closed our eyes, exchanging vows

At the boulevards of Buenos Aires

*

Was it our mind’s musings

When we saw us hand-in-hand

On the streets of Montreal

With kids bearing weird names

Till we were rudely woken

 By the clouts of a brute reality

*

Where there was chemistry,

I found pain, just as I found you

Where there was a scar,

I found two more, just as I found you

*

Yet I wear a painted smile

Because we found something

Even if it lasted for a second

 And you found me too

Though it was ephemeral,

 I know for sure, that I once found you.

    awesome poetry

    didn’t read it though

    I have always had a poetrophobia since jss3

    when they brought this smashing dude to teach literature

    with nice white teeth and lips like a Greek god

    I could almost always trace the outline of his tighty whiteys

    I must have raped him a million ways in a million places at least in my mind

    it went without saying

    I never understood a word in class

    always staring with my mouth agape

    he noticed me once

    and when I couldn’t answer with the
    name of the poem we were supposed to be treating

    he barred me from classes ad infinitum

    I rebelled against the arts that took my first crush from me

    well, maybe not my first

    but a crush nevertheless

    Favourite line: “Though it was ephemeral/
    I know for sure, that I once found you.”

    Nice one, Adrian.

    Now. Who did you write it for? (Just for my peace of mind, of course.) 😀
