you're all that i need...

Posted to Action Poetry




the smell of your body's musk, lingering in the sun's heat, to walk into my mind from my eager nostrils, as they reach out to grab those memories, voracious in their mecca...the way your shirts hung to my knees, scabbed and worn, to show my wilder side, sliding in my fragile form, to hide in the shadows, observing you as prey i would devour, to absorb all that you were, while your hands found me, full of tears to wipe away the pain, that set itself upon my young mind, words that flowed into my being, shaping my strength with clay and heart, the way the nights filled with mysteries, you'd explain in fantasy, i could see the faces, as they flew on firefly tracers, leaving behind worlds, that grew into my creativety, i lay in the recess of cotton comfort, staring into the whiteness, that holds your voice, dripping in tangible stalagtites, that still, touch my soul, in sleep, waking, crying, morning, laughing, existing, i hear the outside, trying to pull me back to it, as the past hazes into today, into a now, that i still thrive on, but...without you, and i wonder, daddy, do i really make you proud, like when i was small, and my actions were innocent...
