poetry, trails of thought

For I do for sure, without hesitation: now, do you equally true?

Am in love,

And can’t undo …

Am in love,

And have no idea how to woo you …

Am in love,

And have no compass to properly locate your space …

Am in love,

And have tried everything I feel minimally correct in the situation …

Am in love,

And need to sense if me breaking the rules is really what you want, is actually what you require …

Am in love,

And wish to hear again your words and laughter – and your wonderfully grave voice …

Am in love,

And need to touch this hair, embrace that body and enter these wholes … oh, how I yearn to enter them.

Am in love,

And cannot be without you and me: without you and me, and freedom’s rightful liberties …

So tell me if you can and tell me if you will: I have messaged you madly

With no replies forthcoming; I have sent you all kind of 

Weird communications; I have cursed you and praised you

And eventually even – terrified! – phoned you without success; for even here,

You put me down sharp … even here, for you it seems some simple lark!

So is it your fervent desire to bless me; to test me; or to just find me wanting?

Am I to be finally rewarded – or abnormally, terribly humiliated?

What other rules must I shatter?  Where else can I try?  What else must I blithely cry and overcome?

Why, my dear Belfast woman so proud, does your strength of character 

Choose to battle me so?  For I am waiting here, and breathing hardly:

And would utterly leave everything I am, if two words only 

You wished to bathe me in.

For I do for sure, without hesitation: now, do you equally true?
