I developed the idea for this on the walk from my last class to my car. I should have written down the lines I came up with, but I am going to expand on the concept and hope I achieve what I was feeling the other day.

“If anyone but you”

If anyone but you my eyes would just gloss over;

I wouldn’t care – my interest would be in some

vain, contemptuous desire to feel like I am on pace

with all these other people who have already passed me by.

 

If anyone but you

My memory wouldn’t be a factor.

There wouldn’t be pictures of passions painted periods ago

placed in portions of my psyche.

There wouldn’t be this connection

to who I was then and what I am now and all the things those two men have ever wanted.

 

If Anyone but you

I would be able to sleep at night. There

wouldn’t be this longing to feel

whole.

 

If anyone but you

This words wouldn’t exist.

I’d be fighting some fictitious foe –

whether it be fantasy or a feigned interest.

If anyone but you,

I’d be able to move on.

 

But I can’t.

Welcome to the empty recesses of my mind! I'm a recent college graduate realizing a Creative Writing degree was a bad idea. Give me a pity like. Or you could check out the about sections (on the front page and about this author page) on my blog to learn a little more about me. Whatever. https://thebohemianrockstarpresents.wordpress.com/

What do you think? Do you agree? Do you love it? Or am i a complete tool? Any response is welcome!
