Rescued Poems

Love Unlike None


tell all my distractions and their demons

go to hell what i would do for you not even

i can’t tell because i do not know it

with no boundaries and no shame

no limits or coy young lovers game not

a furtive glance thrown behind the shoulder

to measure the load of love its carried blame it has no name

what i would do for you is whatever i cannot

do or have not done everything and anything

something with nothing that anyone has done before

for no one nor with everyone


I was feeling overwhelmed by the pile of work in progress I  accumulated over the years and started to toss scribbles I no longer felt any emotional connection to. This writing above — started so long ago I have forgotten where it came from and where I intended taking it. I may have had more verses in mind. I looked at it again tonight when I was putting out my recycle and suddenly wanted to keep it. I’ve removed all punctuation. I don’t recall what sparked it so maybe reading it that way will free it from my expectations and help it become useful in some way.

    I’m doing this reblog because, well, it’s almost June 1, one year later and I need an in-my-face reminder that I did plan to work on that work-in-progress. I now know why I rescued it last year; it rescued me.
