Intentions

3946Mat Collishaw

Remove me from

Your list of intentions

I am not willing to impart

Without confession

*

I have feasted on the shadow

Of your tongue as your words stagger

Prophetically over my apologies

We are not the fantasy I conceived

And you are not a man

Who can love genuinely

*

Almost doesn’t captivate

The same way that forever does

Exception doesn’t mean

Half as much when

It’s an incurable condition

To be in the audience always

Waiting for the ovation to subside

That we may stand together, equal

*

Denial intensifies appetite

In your presence the threat

Of neglect eclipses everything

I am nothing if your actions

Reflect your heart’s content

I am nothing if promises kept

Represent the value assigned

If I wait I will never consummate

My expectations in this life

*

A half does not suffice

When I come

Completely willing

*

kind a sort of a song

  1. “Almost doesn’t captivate

    The same way that forever does”, I love these lines. Very impressive poetry, conveying genuine feelings. Thanks for sharing with us my friend.

  2. We are not the fantasy I conceived
    And you are not a man
    Who can love genuinely

    those lines cary quite the emotion…and i wonder how often we find ourselves in that predicament…i wonder too if our fantasies do more to deride our love….life seldom living up to them…

  3. You have some really profound statements here. “almost doesn’t captivate the same way that forever does”. What a great quote. do you mind if I use them and reference you?

    Powerful lines that resonate strongly with me!
