Abstract

I lost myself

Thinking

That this

would be different.

That I was

finally free from its confinement

That this was

an entirely new environment.

That I

finally knew

what

would

make me

new

Now

,

i stand here

staring

at the summation of its

parts

Realizing

that this will always be

a part

of me

This can never be

apart

from me.

Because it’s everything

that I am

This is more Abstract than some of the poetry I put out here. Some things can’t be ‘structured’.

I think we’re always looking for it.

Because we think

that if we find it

we give ourselves

the chance

of finding ourselves.

Because we think

that if we find it

we can finally create

our own peace

from the pieces

that fell apart

;

But we cant really find it,

it finds us.

Rythmic

We stood on top

of counter tops

Dancing

To a backdrop

of pop

and hip hop

Before they came in

watching

in backdrops of silence

As if we were

some sort of science

they had a licence

to take apart.

As if we

we needed

to stay

in their silence

;

When that’s all we

ever

danced away from

,

in backdrops

of silence

and watching counter tops.

I found myself

in a room

pervaded by an oxymoron

of darkness

and

innocence

 

Watching,

as you began

to pour

your darkness

into my light

in a might

of flashes

flickering

the ashes

of innocence

into gases

 

That ignited

blurs

of

memories of “-”

Before the light was finally let in

;

3.00 AM

Morning

Expectation

nicole-mason-19736.jpg

Hours turned into minutes

as if time was ours

As our words

spilled out

in bouts

of

ascending gradation

in an intoxication

 

that held

an infinity of potential

ramifications.

 

that held,

before they descended,

into a combination of vexations

and unfulfilled expectation.
