like a fool

Like a fool,

Like a poet,

Like a Pisces,

I have chased

So many

Dreams

Into darkness,

Into the light,

Into shadows,

Into a hopelessness

That only I could

Create

For myself.

Haunted by memories,

Embraced by the past

Within the present-

The smell of skin,

The touch of hair,

The taste of tears,

The sound and heat of short, rapid breaths against my neck.

Her

Beneath me

And always hovering

Somewhere

Above me-

Loved

And lost,

But always

Loved.

Like a fool

I have tried

In vain

To not be

Such a fool.
