The Way the Sun SetsThere is light on the horizon.The Way the Sun Sets by SeaPlume
If I faced east, I might have been up all night (as I feel I have),
staring at the dim glow of a computer screen,
scrolling through pages of notes,
and flipping the sheets of crumpled past homework assignments,
seeking answers my tired brain could not comprehend.
If I faced east, dawn would soon be upon me,
sun rays lighting the chapel steeple
that glows now in the spotlights' beams
against the cloudless navy curtains of the sky.
If I faced east, my brain would be buzzing with coffee,
swarming with words and answers and questions
I cannot currently conceive.
The world comes alive at daybreak, even for the sleepless.
But I face west, toward the setting sun,
the last hints of cyan light tinting the sky.
I face a night of tired eyes and quick distractions
that go on for far too long,
a night of long questions
and longer answers
and moments spent dozing into my tea cup.
I face west, toward the end of the day,
waiting for dawn
to bring the end of the night.
Exit, stage rightI ruined myself for relationships,Exit, stage right by SeaPlume
found the perfect partner only to let you go.
(Love makes you do stupid things,
Yet I will not give up so soon,
young and passionate, I seem
unable to resist
Try as I might, I cannot bring myself
to say we were not close to perfect. So, I wonder
what's the frequency of perfection
in my life?
Surely love is not a one-time hap,
the teenage romance that made
a certain actor more than just
If you should show up dead,
I'm afraid I won't be killing myself,
you were always Mercutio anyway.
The clown, the jokester, the philosopher,
the one who holds the whole long story
and its players all
I am my own artist. I enjoy what comes from me, what I create , and would hope that at least on occasion someone other than myself can connect with each of the things I put forth. If not then these are here for my personal enjoyment! |
