Rotations (by guest poet David Wilkins)

This poem is written by a dear friend David. He is presently in High School and has many plans for the future. I hope he realizes his dreams. I know he would love your feedback and comments. This is his first shot at what I hope is a long line of creative expression.

Lots of things are a mystery to me
Like the rotation of the earth and laws of gravity
but one thing I know without needing to see
is that because of you I can be who I need to be
why this life has to be unwilling to believe in this
thing called love simply cuz it can’t be seen
is a mystery to me
just like my life when I walked without your light
but our light remains
and we are desperate to fight through the troubles
and we have nothing to gain
you don’t know why but I hold me to blame
you ask me why and say it’s not the same
you cry foul and life’s not fair
but if there is one thing I learned in the time we shared
its that life’s not fair
it put you with me and let me have the times we share
I truly hope your perfect match
can understand what I could never grasp
you’re a prize not a piece of trash
I was a prince without
worth diamonds made of dirt
eyes like glass
a facade before the class
because I know
without needing to see
you are like the rotation of the earth and the laws of gravity
you’re a complex creature down to the core
but this is something you know
without needing to hear more
so I guess I should come out and say I love you
will you let me stay?

Three Words (I Loved you)

It hurt to hear

those

words

“I loved you”

there was

finality

a last rotation

to the

past

**

I want to hear

I love you

a hope

that

feelings

would

somehow

last

**

How can

three

simple

words

cause trouble

evoke

such pain

***

But then

those

three

can also

spin one

high

in love

again
