Alone With Self and Consequences

Standard

This poem was written years ago but will finally be put into print with many others in my new book, “Heart of a Queen – Poetry and Prose from the Soul” coming January 2013
I think I’ll sit atop trees to cry these tears of mine so that people may say,
“Oh, it’s raining again,” instead of, “damn, she’s crying again?”
I sometimes wish that a thousand bugs would crawl across my skin
Leaving small bumps as evidence of their feeding so that I could think of that and not of you…
I want to drink until I black out so that I may have no remembrance of the look in your eyes the first time we met.
I wish that scientist and surgeons would all come together to perform a revolutionary procedure removing all memories of you and me that are still creeping around in my mind…
I would like to be circumcised so that I may never touch myself again in an attempt to relive how it felt to make love to you…
I at times desire to have my hearing lost so that I cannot hear when people ask if I’ve seen you, or how have you been?  Because I DON’T KNOW!!!!!!
I want to have my hands removed so that I might not reach for you…as you walk on by…
