Meteor

Meteors

So I will love you
just because

there is the day, and

I have always known you.

You have always been
my star

So tell me why
we can not meet

when all the meteors
fly by us, except one and

there is a lucky crash
where you look up at me

  1. I love this. The wordplay between meet and meteor is so clever. And that does seem like a lucky crash. Such a beautiful poem. I’m just now finding this one! The wordpress app is not updating the reader list on my phone correctly apparently. I had to go directly to your page because I was wondering why it wasn’t showing the newest Damascus poem you put on twitter and now I see several things I’ve missed. I’m sorry…I wish I would’ve found it sooner. I really need to get a new laptop.

    1. Thanks. I’m glad you liked it. I wasn’t very sure exactly what the poem was saying. It’s a little vague. I just had a few contradictory thoughts and some interesting words. I never really decided on anything.

    1. Hmmm, that’s interesting. I was thinking of posting again there not as administrator from Mojoepoe allowed to post there but as founder of the site. I’m not sure I can remember the name of the person’s login name to login directly rather than switching from here. I have to see if I can find if I wrote down who it is and if that’s the user name for login. I think I had at least 5 people or characters running that blog and now I’m totally confused because they all had login privileges. If I can’t find it I’ll experiment and it might be a surprise who shows up.
