imposed. (poem 16 of the 30/30)

and
he don't leave my dreams
even when i ask him to politely
and i could never inquire
in real life why he lingers
because in reality
we just ain't that close

but none of that
measures how close i am
to the you we take
for granted

your
lips could purse
after hitting a joint
blowing intoxications
into free air

and i'll inhale your second hand smoke

die reminiscing you
love suffocating my lungs
say your name as my last
words
and choke on your
memory

body decaying
by the syllable
of every love poem
i've written for you

tombstone
engraved with
LOVE for HIM
lies here
2005 to eternity
