heart.cage capacity.

By Six-Out

the way
eyes- twitch. moments
when they pass
like a past that won't stay
and it's almost

the way a human
has the capacity to- long.
for something
that was never there
at the start.

it feels like
the start. hasn't really
because this
makes me wonder
if before -her
there ever was- a this.

and I taste
in dream state. like
only- I need
something more than
a metaphor
to convey
what .she. makes
someone like me

so I write
in short words.
because my fingers
tremble far too much
when I try
to write of love
and the way
her words
make me

so I stumble
through poetry
like a drunken stupor
and I lay here
in bed.
and hope that
these words
can pull love
from those
eyes of hers.

I long.
for that which
I have never
felt. but-

through these words.
and wires
and pages upon
pages- of
something like

has every bit
of me.

    "and hope that these words can pull love from those eyes of hers." I rarely ever comment on your works because lets face it you have enough fans and by now you should know how amazingly gifted you are...but every now and then you pen out something so beautiful even I feel the need to leave my appreciation. this was hopeful and lovely in every way *tips hat* ~k

    This is a great way to express love. Leave off the flowery stuff, and the stark simple truth is plain to see.
