[ .karma.in.your.cabaret. ]

but all your names
are on my inside
written in my lining
its where you've been
always holding on
in echoes and in tales

its all I've seen
on your night and day
its where my midnight
meets up with yours
we've always been this way
just so indescribingly far away

its all your karma in your cabaret
its like I've always been here
waiting in your brightly shinning shadows
in your very echo
in your very night time

but the smoke stacks down
like our memories of dead cigarillos
the heads burnt black
and their lives burnt down
where we sucked them
cleanly to their inevitable ends

and your phone is off
and my radio in full bloom
against the pointless early morning
and I'm awake here in the a.m. light
no matter which way is up
I'm still holding onto
the pictures of you
in my head and hands

my every shaking day
has been moving oh so fast
and I cannot keep up the rumble
in the lot or in the street
where the love we make
is all for fighting in the ring

all just for the burning struggles
where the primal
is so much more satisfying
because its the only time we are real
and only there I feel you
like I've known you all this time
my searing eyes show you that much

but its been strange days
since last we met
but I know you
like you know me
better than I should I think
you all recall me
in my every waking hour
that spills against your beautiful ticking minutes

its under my skin
under my sundered belly
my hungry & terrible cure for you
in towers and blue-black shadows
I once was on watch for
in charge of that mechanism
that we call sorrow

all our laughter
has been shot down here
as we watch the breach
for the signs of the failing day
that we are all hiding from

even if we can only have
just five more minutes
before it takes us all
I just want one more go
at those names
under my skin

Thanks for goin' out of your way to find me and get your comment to me. Meant a lot. I'm not much of the poet, but the inspiration strikes time to time and I stab at it with dull blades. lol Like your work and will visit here from time to time, even though I don't often comment. Like I told Puss, poetry to me is a spectator sport, to be watched from the bleachers and be enjoyed mostly in silence. Thanks again.
