you’ve come so near to feel so far;
i think i’m drowning in the promise
of you

you strike me as rather tragic
(i’m still cool from the warmth
of your jacket)
it’s the most romantic thing i’ve
seen, your riot eyes
so lost, pounding out a new
niche for you (man, your fire
could burn this place down) –
i smile so slightly as you
ghost across my floor with
caffeine veins (cocaine ain’t
got nothin’ on you,
babe) and you are back, back,
back at the beginning and you’ve
never seen me before –
nothing has changed.

i still love you.

I love this poem. It reminds me a little of E. E. Cummings' "I carry your heart with me"...
