Poem: 21


(For National Poetry Month I am writing a stream-of-conscious poem per day. Each poem is  a spontaneous poem single edit – could get messy!  Here is Poem #21.

hard to think I was ever so young
nothing’s like being twenty-one
drinking and dancing until two
heading home with somebody new

and twenty-one then there was you
I never thought I’d fall in love
caught with that first how do you do
utterly completely to you

twenty-one I was so alive
twenty-one so much left to do
twenty-one you stole my soul
twenty-one it never lasts

everything became about us
lingering long after midnight
telling our stories sharing dreams
having our future by any means

days we never got out of bed
us laying simply skin to skin
twenty-one was the year of bliss
nothing would ever ruin this

twenty-one I was so alive
twenty-one so much left to do
twenty-one you gave me love
twenty-one it never lasts

we lasted long past twenty-one
promised our lives and made our vows
yearning with hunger we consumed
every last taste of each other

even volcanoes take a rest
even earthquakes must settle down
but not us we just kept on burning
spiraling madly out of control

twenty-one I was so alive
twenty-one so much left to do
twenty-one you made me whole
twenty-one it never lasts

fires die in a pile of ash
when we were done nothing remained
not even hate we just grew cold
nothing between us – not a spark

our passions fading into dark
thirty-one and you simply left
a decade summed up in a note
saying “farewell I’ve moved out west”

twenty-one I was so alive
twenty-one so much left to do
thirty-one you broke my heart
twenty-one it never lasts.
