Don’t You See

why we can remove the lines
From our bodies
And dissolve them in the blankness
While time sits on its hands
Watching the sands erode
From a wave of glances and gazes
Riding on the winds of change
Which money stacked upon money couldn’t even make blow
With such a force to transform the matters of the past into obese balloons
Floating high enough to reach that strange land
Where footprints never touch the ground
Because of the hungry air-eating sounds of Cupid’s wings
Overshadowed only by the hissing arrows
That pierce hearts into loving absence —
The absence of everything but you.

    Such a wistful tone to this poem. I particularly like the description of “the hungry air-eating sounds of Cupid’s wings.”

  2. Wow! This is really great! I especially like lines four and five. 🙂
