through cracks in the sidewalk

just maybe

I can breathe again

King Me

I’ll take your Queen,

And hold her tight

forever,

never

to return.

I’ll make you cry,

your eyes bleed,

scream out,

“How can this be?”

“You’re a pawn.”,

I reply.

Too shy,

too timid

to try.

Too tired to

run behind me,

struggling to match

my pace,

as I take your Bishop.

Dominating this space;

your Knight is next.

Tonight…

Sleep comes 

so rarely these

days, dreaming

infrequently. I retain

nothing – flashes of

memory.

I lie

awake to hide.

Dear

•March 5, 2012 • 1 Comment

I know I shouldn’t,

Couldn’t,

Can’t,

But I still do.

I dream of you,

Constantly,

Consistently.

I love you.

You are

my one.

I know.

I just can’t

Admit my faults.

I dream

of tomorrow,

of believing

in dreams

like wishes.

There is no past.

No presence.

No future.

With or

Without

Love.

As I silently wipe tears away.

I wonder what

they thought

before the doctors

began to diagnose

autism? Were there

just a bunch of anti-social,

rainman-type,

idiot savants who no

one knew were

really just simply

autistic, blocked

from so-called

“normal” forms of

communication?

How many child

prodigies were over

-looked, genius

unfulfilled?

Then South

Park resumes, and I

let the idiots

entertain my

numbed-by-society

brain.

the storm

outside this window

i hear the rain

pattering,

wind crashing,

slicing through trees.

i picture

shopping carts,

the old men cowering,

hunkering down

in doorways,

under tarps -

invisible to

us

people

safe and warm

in their slippers

with blankets,

as my cat curls

up on my lap,

waiting out

the storm

Coincidentally written on the back of a Keno ticket.

Blink

Colors

Descending

Changing

Clanging in

my mind-

numbing awe

Deuces

Wild

Smile

Into

Oblivion.

 

Now I know why there are compulsive gamblers.
