A Phoenix Fiction Writer Rising From The Ashes of Nonfiction



Poem Introduction

Another poem about the travails of dating, written in college.

Once again:
been there,
done that,
wear the t-shirt.




You surfaced from a sea of faces
And I not expecting and only wishing
Held you in time, stroked by your eyes
And calmed by the honey in your voice.

Not smart enough to leave you
I was helpless to your leaving.
The torpedo of your absence
Exploding in me as you floated away

And as I drift, spent, among the sea of faces
Somewhere in the night you will surface again
And another victim called out by your charms
Will have his hopes sent to the bottom.
