Favorite Quote:
"No artist tolerates reality" ~Nietzsche


Compromise a wave,
A smile,
Perhaps a smirk,
I’d be satisfied with a glance
I’d be warmed by a scoff
I’d be revived by a “hello”
But you say, “Goodbye, Hello”

His smile is a wave whose crash I never run from,
The single tide the Moon cannot control,
An undertaking of standard for the risk of extraordinary
Destined to save my soul
Yet entitled to something worth while

I will suffer so that he may smile
For his prosperity,
Is based on my capability
To suppress my affections
It’s the scarlet letter on my bosom
Except the red embroidery is shaped into a heart
And everyone wears it

And so, “we” dissolve
The air carries us as its ingredient
Oxygen, Nitrogen, and Unreciprocated Love
Nature does not blame us
Yet there is as fault in I
As is in you

And so, out of Closure’s persistence,
I compromise a gesture,
And a forlorn frown
I wave to you, Chance
And to you, Attention
I say, “Hello, Goodbye”

Very nice poem! I have liked these lines the most " the red embroidery is shaped into a heart" and " his smile is a wave whose crash I never run from"
