A World Away Means We Are Dust

A world away

means we are dust

Showing a sign

Is a leaf in the crack of the sidewalk

 

Even if I did say

Something stupid

You know I’m true

 

Even though

I got mad

You know my heart is real

 

I’m aware

Of words

That shoot sideways

 

I’m guilty

Of saying

Things layered in misdirection

 

Even if

My tongue

Never touches yours ever again

 

Even if

My hands

Never feel the tautness of your stomach

 

I am

Your friend

Regardless of my desire

 

I am

An ear

Listening to your desires

 

But,

 

A world away

Means we are dust

 

Please,

Please,

Please,

No.

  1. Don’t be sorry, it’s all right. I just wanted to let you know your poem resonates in a strange way. (Strange to me at least.) I assume authors wanna know what their poems “do” after they’ve published them. (I do at least.)
    Never heard of intentional fallacy before but I looked it up now. 😉
