Poem: i will wait – 19/12/21

I wait for that moment when hearts will rise and beauty
will glisten in both sets of eyes
watching from afar away from my form
I feel subtleties stiffen news break soft damn

hands held in manner of peaked prism
saying darling what you are thinking
and I smile with little spurts of healing
like a volcano rushes with ominous pace
it travels there
weaving and styling in its sleek attitude

he shows that there is not barrenness there
his intent I can always taste
as though thick molasses
syrupy tempting goodness

knowing to have it is not worth it
but the memory of the taste, well,
I cannot dress myself the feeling
the dirtiness of the heady experience,

living with his intentions upon my back
I cannot help but know there’ll be many
more of them and I cannot help
cannot detail the anger which comes
from being managed

this magma bearer
can move on
unlock that pick
that love-locket along the creek’s bridge
we tried friendship before
really did
like vapour evaporates so easily
there dissipated our love .
