The youth was sweaty and their attachments many. Tonight I could feel who I was when I was then. Standing amongst the past does funny things to yourself. It hurts and I much prefer the company of the future.
It’s often said, there’s nothing more important than right now. That gives me a lot of power. These words are the most important words you will read right now.
I could promise to write a poem a day, but then I obviously would want to rhyme here and write the word, say. I’d just be fulfilling some vow in a county of people that don’t value such things. If only you knew how hypocritical I sound, you would slap me. Don’t worry. I will for you.
The words I write are written for stage. Someday they will be sung when I have the nerve to step up to what I want to own. But where shall they mostly be received-for now-probably a backlit screen in the navy blue of a night reflecting street lights bouncing from white walls, while someone’s turned away from their lover making engagements with Tumblr.
Sometimes you have to know for sure, so you do things you feel you don’t want to do. Sometimes you haven’t a clue and so you try something new. Results are rarely the same or as predicted, but it feels damn good when your experience matches a hunch.
Thank you for reading.
