it isn’t over yet

written May 23, 2003

Not flying so high that my eyes remain dry
Not that Im running down your sanity
Its my fantasy
My fallacy
Silky smooth, Ive fallen for you
Not empty adoration, simply a realization
That I thought I knew

In the space between a second
On sapphire wings you flew
Swimming through the sky of my mind
Pushing through the web of their lies
In cracked silence
With silver tears she cries

Not knowing the finite line
Not seeing the invisible sign
That tells me to move forward
And make no mistake
Its not just your mind Im looking toward
Its beyond your heart
And so much more

  1. aww thank you! yeah, if you want to see more stuff you can go to my old site (the link is on the sidebar). 🙂

  2. This would be a great spoken word piece. Very beautiful! Also, I can see your poetry becoming a little wiser…I don’t know how quite to explain it other than that. Keep it comin.

    And I’m curious to know the inspiration for this….

  3. Lacey-
    Thank you…I guess the more one writes, the more one learns. Actually, I wrote this at National Convention, so that whole atmosphere really contributed to it all. There are probably other inspirations too…

    🙂 ah, ambiguity.

  4. must agree with +Mojan & Lacey- this is a very beautiful poem-

    actually i’m seeing it more as song lyrics, but that’s just me…

    probably have U2 on the brain again (when do i not? haha) … ambiguity is one of their (Bono’s) lyrical strongpoints-

    if one pulls it (ambiguity) off well, which i think you have, it makes for a very strong piece because people can get more than one thing from it-

    “on sapphire wings”- that may be my favorite image from the poem- didn’t you have that line up here earlier?

    yeh, i hope you do post more…

  5. Jay-
    i did have that line up, but I wanted the title of my blog to be Sliding Thoughts…maybe when I get around to it, “on sapphire wings” will be a minor little note somewhere. 🙂
