ID

Composed 4/21/18
Description: n/a

Reckless and free
You are a part of me
A physical manifestation of id-inspired cravings
With kindness and handsome idiosyncrasies
Musical, unrestrained
By any convention other than one’s soul feeling
Fair weather nature
Lover, wanderer
Recorder of life’s victories
And tragedies
That waft
A poison cloud reminder
That you don’t have it all together
Vague posts and alcohol smiles
Mask the anxiety provoked by
Trying to contain the galaxy in your heart
Voices heard slip through lips in passing
The need to be engaged with me, you, all in reality
The key that opens the mystery
Of a tortured solitude
Clouds disappear like your commitments
Inconsistency your only constancy
And the more I know the less I see
The part of you I thought was me

  1. This is beautiful You’ve pulled together some wonderful phrases. I especially like:

    Melancholic, like everything you have written over the past few weeks. Are you OK?

    1. Ha, yes, I’m fine! It has been a stressful few weeks for a few reasons (work, some family health issues) but everything is fine! Many poems I’ve posted recently are old but I’ve just recently polished up and posted them… this one included. This one is specifically a kind of portrait of a person I know that I have not actually spoken to recently…

      Thank you so much for your comment and concern :)
