Slow Enough


 

Gorgeous hardcover….

Longtime hard-lover.

Little beaver

Impressive diva

Potent dilemma

My deadly fever.

 

Isn’t life fast enough to know love?

All my tears, I cry.

I try to impress love

I try to suppress pain

Love is fast and too big

To fall………………..

 

Behind my very short legs on a race contest

Or trace the lines of my cold tears on my chin.

Grace,

Fast and slow,

Unintentional Lies

You say to love.

 

Phony, low and high

Untrue slow devotion

Mutely saying no to fondness,

Hot to weakness,

Coolly to fake beds, ghostly forever more

All my tears, I cry.
