forgiveness

I can’t stand you!
Is what she utters as
she slams the door,
bags in hand
looking as beautiful as ever
so I can’t take her words
seriously
because her beauty captivates
me and allures me:

I can only focus on the positives.

Weren’t there negatives?

God damn, she’s gorgeous
and has the lips that could only
have been created by a deviant
deity.

I’m constantly seduced by her
without her even being present
or speaking to me
or thinking of me
or acknowledging me.

I’m fascinated.
I should spend some time in the mountains.
Find me a bear.
Like Leo
and hole up in a dead horse.

Maybe that’ll take my mind
off of her; but then again,
horse guts…

Thank goodness for

Recently moved back to the States after living 16 months in Vietnam. I write to remove the thoughts trapped in the cobwebs of my psyche before the spider envelopes me whole.
