everloving i

Everloving I:
beg among the multitude,
but you are darkness-fair,
to give but kingly precious few…
an essence of alms
to sustain the pleader more.
 
In my wounded soul:
I have placed you piercing deep,
yet still you wander…
still my heart do reap.
 
I will breathe the very air:
that you will move to form,
the words of change.

And there I will:
part my lips,
to sigh…to seal
and cry with my soul
returned

to ask still why I will ever
yearn.

edit fit

love me like i belong

i do not fit

but here i sit

and refuse to be removed

countless times

you’ve read it

what need more

is there to edit?

i mess up the flow

 have no profound meaning to add or show

adjectives pretend to be my friends

but honestly are much too clingy

and those obnoxious adverbs affect me quite adversely

but do not…do not replace me

with those presumptuous ellipses

i do not rhyme

and have no rhythm

but i have been here so very long

so just love me

like i belong

 

i have never

i have never

lay upon the roadside and cried for sleep
pleaded for water or whimpered for a meal
walked farther than far and still walked some more
bickered for space and frowned at innocent smiles

said words i did not believe
swore oaths i did not comprehend

felt pity drowning within myself
felt fright in sharing
guilt for still caring
accused innocent lives to continue with mine

i thought my nevers would last,but they betrayed me…

my never evers have become my now.
