Piercing The Sky, A Book of My Poems
Author: Neil Evans

Chapter 37
I Love You

I decided to keep writing, to keep posting, and to keep going. This was actually a tough decision. Poetry keeps me in check, I think. It keeps my emotions in place and keeps me from going off the handle, just like music does for some people.

I wanted this poem to have the feel of "The Angel" and at the same time I wanted it to be better, I wanted it to be about having love. And all I had to do was think about someone very special to me. Someone that I can never live without. I'm thinking about trying a Shakespearean sonnet, soon, but I'm very afraid of the outcome. We shall see...


The cancerous flavor of a rainbow
Burning my skin with toxic fumes
Making even the dead wake from slumber
The rueful feeling of anxious calamity we call love

The wind-like flow of seashells
Scratching and twisting
Sadistically inside my stomach
It feels so damn hazardous and good

Numb smiles filled with unintentional glee
Every moment without you causing instant insanity
I stay calm like the soaring eagle on fire
Your voice spraying cool acid, curing my disease

The painful sting of your non-existent presence
Paranoid and scared, I shiver and shake
But eventually I'll be okay, I'll be awake
Just as long as I have you, in all your essence

There are only three words that I can say
To explain how much I truly care,
They feel so insignificant, but important
And they reside in my mouth, waiting to be let free

I love you
