They give me "strong" as a word to work with
I guess I'll use it

watching slam poem after slam poem after slam poem
no words of my own to write

I can't see his face in my head
I can see his wet eyes
and his back

I did that

I can see my fidgeting hands, my gasps to pull back sobs

I see the love I've broken in an instant
the gasping embrace

I see his back
walking to his van

I see him pause in his van
pause in his van
pause in his van

before he drives away.
First day of a break-up, one I started. I did it out of love, because I don't have have enough love left to keep us going. I wish I never had to do it.
There is a door
that opens up to the street
behind it

to a row of 70's houses,
to the path stringing through their foundations.

I never knew there could be a window to my past life,
leading mind to another window,
a portal out the old subterranean dorm room

facing a parking lot, then grass, then woods.
Portal: I exhaled soul for sights while high,
watching stars rise from trees.

A past life: walking in through cigarette smoke.

A past life: the grey architecture.

A past life: noise.

A past life: waiting
      for the roommates to leave.
      for the tenseness to stop.
      for something better.
Someday, I will grow silent.
Someday the sound will stop in its gut, my mouth will sew itself.

I'll grow tired of the table, of watching you talk,
my hands will turn to the keys, I'll watch them speak.

Picture me as a tree: the mind, the hands
are watering themselves, the leaves will sprout within.

I'm a weather system, my breath's the rain, my eyes the sun, sometimes,
my shoes are clouds.

I may not leave the room    that's ok.

I will water

I'll watch the sun come up
in my eyes,

I will sprout violets
                     you cannot see.
Why would you want any other
when you're a world within a world?
As the music left my fingers,
I saw how beautiful my hands were.
Playing the Piano
That's all of it for now. I feel no need to elaborate. :heart:
