  Reading it for what it is

I like it. Nice imagery
and it's just good to see some poetry back here as well

  your situation just made me think about a song by Bruce Cockburn

"Lovers in a Dangerous Time"

These fragile bodies of touch and taste
This vibrant skin -- this hair like lace
Spirits open to the thrust of grace
Never a breath you can afford to waste
When you're lovers in a dangerous

When you're lovers in a dangerous time
Sometimes you're made to feel as if your love's a crime --
But nothing worth having comes without some kind of fight --
Got to kick at the darkness 'til it bleeds daylight

  Even though he has an unfortunate name, Mr. Cockburn (*giggle*) has a few good to great songs.

  Does that have anything to do with the girl in your other post by any chance?

  Beep: basicly, yeah

Libra: I still don't know what to do. I'm having a hard time handling myself at the moment... I'm not used to being so indecisive and unable to control my emotions. I want to get her out of my system but it isn't working.

chris...i know you like to treat everything as if it's part of some battle or business you're running...but you can't dismiss this girl if you really do care about her and think that things could work gorgeously between the two of you.

I still vote that you talk to her or something. see how she feels. And you're not putting yourself on the line by doing it...she'll probably just see it as a sign of maturity.

Remember the girl on the train or whatever form of transportation? and you never found her...don't let this one get away if you want her.

pronounced "co-burn", although it does look funny in print.

You reminded me of this:

The One That Got Away
by Tom Waits

The jigolo's jumpin salty
ain't no trade out on the streets
half past the unlucky
and the hawk's a front-row seat
dressed in full orquestration
stage door johnnys got to pay
and sent him home
talking bout the one that got away

could a been on easy street
could a been a wheel
with irons in the fire
and all them business deals
But the last of the big-time losers
shouted before he drove away
I'll be right back as soon as I crack
the one that got away

the ambulance drivers don't give a shit
they just want to get off work
and the short stop and the victim
have already gone berserk
and the shroud-tailor measures him
for a deep-six holiday
the stiff is froze, the case is closed
on the one that got away

Jim Crow's directing traffic
with them cemetery blues
with them peculiar looking trousers
them old Italian shoes
the wooden kimona was all ready
to drop in San Francisco Bay
but now he's mumbling something
all about the one that got away

Costello was the champion
at the St. Moritz Hotel
and the best this side of Fairfax,
reliable sources tell
but his reputation is at large
and he's at Ben Frank's every day
waiting for the one that got away

he's got a snake skin sportshirt,
and he looks like Vincent Price
with a little piece of chicken
and he's carving off a slice
but someone tipped her off
she'll be doing a Houdini now any day
she shook his hustle
and a Greyhound bus'll
take the one that got away

Andre is at the piano
behind the Ivar in the sewers
with a buck a shot for pop tunes,
and a fin for guided tours
He could of been in Casablanca
he stood in line out there all day
but now he's spilling whiskey
and learning songs about a one that got away

well I've lost my equilibrium
my car keys and my pride
tattoo parlor's warm
and so I huddle there inside
the grinding of the buzz saw
whatchuwanthathingtosay
just don't misspell her name
buddy she's the one that got away
