Somewhere inside, things get warmer
for December, that is, the snow's melting fast--
and I proffer you a tired poem, a poem uphill
walking slowly, drunkenly, trying to talk all night
until we say, "enough" and close our eyes.


So. You self-mythologize, they say, and I see
the majesty, the possibility, all the stories you tell and
the ones you clearly hide; too proud to beckon, too fierce
to slip away: I see the hollow places where I could fit
and the hard places I would fall; that's when you'd call me,
at that exact moment: as I leave, you come in.


These poems have become 
			a conversation with the negative:
that space you call your own, the vacuum of the possible--

yes, and 

	no, and

everything I'd say in between, like: 'what do you want', and
'do you?' and yet never 'who are you?' 
				     because you know, don't you.

My god. You really must start doing something with your Deviant Account.

I can't even pick a favorite line. All of them, just so wordlessly eloquent and gorgeous and beautiful and interesting, and I can't even quote my favorite pieces because I'd just be copy and pasting your entire poem with a million hearts beside it.

Haha, wow. I don't know how you found me (and also my DevArt account!), but thank you! :D No one usually replies to my poems, and I was worried I'd gotten super-rusty. :)

I honestly don't remember how I found you either. And your Dev Account was easy. xD (just looked up your name in google and -dev next to it. Please excuse me if I sound like a stalker. I have not yet found out what you did last summer, nor planning too. ;D)

If this is your rusty, then i'll be taking a vow never to write again. -in awe-
