My Looking Glass

Updated on April 10, 2018

I Apologize

Never knew a care like that existed.

To care enough to deprive oneself of sanity, I never knew.

I never knew a fondness so strong its connection breathed life in dry bones with lost souls.

It can see through without eyes and hear without ears because it understands what's real, huh I never knew.

I never knew a hope as potent as this. It lives amongst the dying and smiles, encouraging what was lost to be found. A hope that embraces the weak and brings structure to an amoeba, I never knew.

I I never knew a touch-less orgasm before you.

No one ever told me to value what was true and genuine. See I live in a world that's counterfeit, it forges reality to fit on a silver screen giving idiots dreams. I live in a world that would rather set you on fire and you tube you stop, drop and rolling before educating our youth.

I live in, hell we live in a country that focuses on building a penitentiary than rebuilding a family, so NO I never knew.

I never knew a kiss so sweet, or a look so deep it causes this heart to sink. I thought I had grown numb to it all. Dead bodies exist in dry walls, toe tags and cops called, sirens blaring hitting the house floor doing roll call.

How was I supposed to know you were not a hallucination but a gift from God bringing me jubilation. I'm sorry boo, I honestly, truly sincerely never knew.

      I've been hub hopping and just read another great piece you wrote. I have a letter an organization sent me after they read a poetry book I wrote to help people learn to read the tarot, most of the other poets had material more like yours. They asked me to write a column once a week, and I was interested, but they never got back to me. I will look for the letter, and see if there is an email address on it, because at the time I watched their videos, it seemed you have a lot in common with their main artists. I will look for the letter. Keep up the good work!
