181 Nights.

Cravings of the quiet working into the nights to come.
Following this any further would be a silly game of a boy.
And his toy.
Flashed before, but now gone dull.
Kept the time, and grown too slow.
But why this hope?
Why this grip?
Just let go.
Just let it go.
All gone.
Into something, sometime, new.
Chances and with depth.
Fewer teeth and more laughs.
See the past over there; it’s real and it’s better.
And near enough to almost touch is another.
But the shakes of now still do shudder.
Never dry hump a dream.

I'm impressed. I happened across your blog the other day and just wanted to say that from the brief back-reading I've done and from today's post, I think I'll check back here often. Good luck with your writing and your ideas outside of communication...

You amaze me. The way you twist things. The good dressed in bad, the bad dressed in sexy and the sexy left nude.

Some knack.

...of course--why "dry hump that dream"...
minds wrapped, wet & slick--a more true communion--the *real* thing (real being completely relative of course)... ah, yeah. so much better.

Rex, See the past over there; it’s real and it’s better.
And near enough to almost touch is another.
I love that line... see the past over there. Wow. It's like we distance ourselves from it, make it an object, pulling out the emotion through our mental juice squeezer. Oh, yeah, the last line was classic too, but you knew that ;-) Great work, I love this stuff!
