Higher than the Rooftop : The Haze...

Cloudy…misty…foggy…the haze was sickening.


Wish it should have rained instead. Well, maybe the rain could have soaked all up the ache I’ve been feeling. I knew this day would come…I mean, you could be smiling in the sunset, then you could be crying in the night.


I just never thought it could hurt like this. Yeah, it’s a part of fallin’, to take a fall…but with him, soaring…it was a crazy fall. Gently I fell…now, the hurt is cutting me inside gently, too. Crazier than a one big blow, breaking me little by little, pieces by pieces…it’s killing me.


It was a cloudy, starless night. I wasn’t in the mood and it was a pretty lame day so I thought of goin’ to the top to freshen up. Found him standing there wearing that vague face. I knew from that look there’s gonna be some thunder…I knew there’s gonna be a rainfall…and I knew I would gonna be sick.


But the rainfall never came Though lightning has struck after some thunder…breaking the link between us.


Cloudy…misty…foggy…the haze was sickening.


And so I am standing here, in this reserved rooftop…without him…

I don’t know if he’ll come back…

My heart never met his heart on the haze…


And so I am standing here, scared to death…

Scared the haze would blur him what I really wanna say…


It came over me in a rush
when I realized that I love you so much
that sometimes I cry
but I can’t tell you why
why I feel what I feel inside

how I try to express
what’s been troublin' my mind
but still I cant find the words
but I know that some things got a hold of me

baby someday I’ll find a way to say
just what you mean to me
but if that day never comes along
and you don’t hear this song
I guess you'll never know

It came over me in a rush
when I realized that I love you so much
that sometimes I cry
but I can’t tell you why
why I feel what I feel inside

and when I say inside I mean deep
you fill my soul
and that’s something I can’t explain
its over me



Cloudy…misty…foggy…the haze was sickening.

The damn haze…higher than the rooftop.

Yikes, it sounds so tragic...was the last poem meant to be part of this..I'm a bit confused..

I will say, it's a tough position that the rooftop became a santuary for both..I feel a person, or maybe it's just me needs their "Greta Garbo" time..peace and solitude to clear their mind...so that beautiful things are not stifled..

I just don't know why love becomes so tragic...maybe fear. I feel, I could relate to this better when I was younger and not as understanding of my own identity. Though, I will agree that it can be uneasy to communicate when your heart is fluttering wildly, like a bubble on acid!

Thanks, blaise! I look forward to the finale (unless this is it) :)

Hello there my favorite poets, Invictus and Poet! :)

--Invictus

It’s a song (In a Rush, from Blackstreet) and yah, I’ve put it there..like I said it was all I really wanted to say..

I agree, sometimes we need a little “Greta Garbo” time.

Fear, yup it invades any moment but I must say I fear of nothing right about now…I mean, the haze was just a phase… :) Bubble on acid? They are beautiful but fleeting..I go crazy for your words at times :) In a good way lol

Thanks a lot! This isn’t the finale yet, 2 more I guess.. ;p

--Poet

:) It’s not..thank you so much for being here…you will be on the finale ;p
