quasar the vermillion dust (part 5 the finale)…

closing time

heard from a messenger;
that girl is smiling
because she is breathing
the same air running wild
in my alveoli. disbelief
on my part until the realization
we were listening to the
same music too. might even
have shared dinner
& split a milkshake down
the middle.

i reached out for her
with a name that was &
wasn’t hers, hoping she’d
see i was only here
because i needed her as much
as she needed me.


To M, even if she doesn’t know why. We all have our reasons, even when there is nothing reasonable about them. With love.

Authors note; this is the final poem in the quasar series. I think I got what I wanted out of them, but that as always is a matter of opinion rather than factual observation. Anyway thanks to all who read them. I appreciate the support.

    phew… after I read this one I had to go back and read the others…
    I am such a lazy poet blogger…. I put in a few poems here or there every once in a while and forget to daily check in on my subscriptions, and you being one of my favorites, don’t let it get to your head but it’s still a compliment 🙂 (I’m working on a novel… so much of my mental and emotional energy is being put to that instead of here where i normally put it.)
    very very thoroughly impressed… I’m glad to have read it. I hope you visit my blog some time 🙂 I look forward to your critiques
