"Ensemble" - 3/19/07

be careful what you wish for
isn't that how the saying goes

there is a gap Adonai knows
between how we lie together

and what you will not say
and I wonder restlessly:

if I didn't pry, would you share your good news
if I didn't offer, would you educe these hues

my last true love was so long ago
I admit I've forgotten what depth dances like

still I try to allow my six senses to drown
desolate as most oceans appear to me now

tell me, my friend...
are you home tonight? dare I rap

on the the door of your personal fortress
or is it best I remain inside my own igloo

where at least it's safe and there's no bloodstain

to rival my ensemble (wistfully gone to waste)
