Listen :By Jeremy MacDonough

Location

 


I dare to evoke emotions


unspoken of


out of sheer unclearness


of the weird of which I look at.


 


Speechless before you now


I don't frown,


but kneel down and believe


in the destiny I've laid before me.


I dust off the climbing shoes


and parooze to the top shelf where I,


once over eye,


the collection of thoughts I've


stuffed into these shelves,


before I delve


into the


next best feeling I've ever felt.


 


I melt.


 


I stand tall above it all,


and crumble quickly as I fall


all the way down shoots and ladders;


 


I couldn't be much gladder that this


sun isn't done just shining for me. Believe


it or not,


I know it shows for you too, I knew


it had a purpose that was beyond provoking blue,


so that you too


could see these deep feelings that


stumble up from beneath me,


to teach me,


and in that sense...need me. Just


 


as the listener defines the preacher,


I'm near, sir,


to a silver sliver of life


givin' me shivers


of all kinds up and down my


spine.


 


So take the ride in,


and be done hidin',


it's your life to give so


why not give it all you got,


no matter how many shots


this possibility wants to give you.


 


I pray you


 


unstick the glue to


move faster and deeper,


to the true you


buried under so much hue.


 


Don't be blinded by my


vividly decided


words I've slided out from my mind


and did


the impossible,


 


or so they might say in this day


and age. For,


 


fate cant escape the


time it resides with


and chose to


comply with. For,


 


if it is so simple you might say,


then any day is the day


to make your vision


your day-to-day.


I say!


What a mad idea;


it's so...


 


...such a melody a


flaw or imperfection could surely


never be found.


 


 


So this is, my love,


my idea...to throw you round and round
