BLURRED BORDERS (photomorph) & EVERYONE (free verse dream poem) by Roswila


they visit me from the past,
each a former friend

two of them (what a pair!)
have brought me to this pass
and then deserted me,
as if that's what everyone does,
and maybe so, but then "everyone"
is "no one" I want to befriend

worse yet they leave me
in the company of him, that one,
definitely now a "no one"
but in this dream quite
a "some one," as he was way back

we curl up together
(not without a wee bit
of hesitation on my part, as I
think, at least I've got
that much sense left)
seeking the creature comfort
of body touching body

it's predictably delicious and
as long as it goes no further,
I figure, what the heck

but of course it does
(go further, that is)
yet even at this more intimate
level I keep my distance

determined for once to set
my own boundaries
(this far and no further)
finding the prospect
of a self-generated distance
even more attractive
than this man out of my past

PLEASE NOTE: in most browsers you can click on the above image for a larger version. Also, the photo accompanying a post is not necessarily meant to illustrate it, but to reflect some small, even slant aspect of the verse, similar to Japanese haiga (illustrated haiku).

There are many other sorts of posts on this blog. I indicate which are about or influenced by dreams. Some non dream focused posts are book reviews, "regular" poems (some by other writers, as the above is), scifaiku, writing exercises, Tarot haiku, photos, haiga, and so on. However, most of those are in much older posts. There's a listing by month going back to early 2006, at the end of the sidebar.
