"Carpe diem."


It's so weird
I'm looking at a plain white wall
And all I see is you

I mean,
There's so much going on
Around me
The cat's purring
I hear the keys clicking as I type
The clock ticks the seconds of my life away
1:10 a.m., 1:11 a.m., 1:12 a.m.

And still all I see,
All I can think about
All that floods my hearing,
Just beyond consciousness
Is you

How can you do this to me,
When it's been so long
You've been gone for forever
I've met others
I've fallen
I've gotten back to my feet
Dusted my jeans off
Looked toward the sun
But always you are there

You're like a weed
That refuses to go away
Only you're better,
Sweeter,
Easier to miss

I don't understand
How it could be this long
And you still have my heart

I look out the window
And see blackness,
Stars,
The half moon,
But, also, the lights from the house
Reflect off of it
And your smile dances in the translucent brightness

Forever,
Everlasting,
Eternal,
Burned into my memory
With the simple greeting of
“Hello.”

I really don't get it
I doubt I ever will
Wherever I walk,
Whether I've been there before
With you
Or not,
You are there,
Burned into my very core

You appear everywhere,
Because wherever I go,
I carry you with me,
In my heart

It's so weird
I'm looking at a plain white wall
And all I see is you

As the cat purrs
And the clock ticks the seconds of my life away
1:19 a.m., 1:20 a.m., 1:21 a.m.


The author's comments:
This is a really controversal poem when it comes to what it's about. The obvious answer is that it's about a guy I used to be in love with, but I think it's also somewhat about my grandparents who passed last year, my friends who have moved away, and all of the relationships that have faded to nothing over the years.

Wow!

This was really really well-written. I love the ending; how it is a repetition of a previous line. I am definitely favouriting this. :) Good job!!
