Walking in Circles, Waiting for Yesterday's Kiss


Poem Commentary

Endurance is the key to surviving the harder durations of life. I just wish that I had someone to share those times, along with the better ones, with me.

Walking in Circles, Waiting for Yesterday's Kiss

Without your touch, I'm at a loss for words/
Counsel from friends only leaves me discouraged/
I feel the life of nothing because I felt you/
I look at our sky and I still feel blue/
Like a pebble, I skip along and sink because I can't swim/
My mind bends to the decrepit nature of many whims/
Patience is not for the incarnadine desire of my soul/
It irrevocably prods me to feign a facade of the bold/
My conscience befriends anxiety and often quiets me/
Your warm, gentle hands used to soothe my malady/
Now dust and air along with despair are left to challenge me/
My mind deceives and smothers the hope of a better reality/

Poetry is not an expression of the party line. It's that time of night, lying in bed, thinking what you really think, making the private world public, that's what the poet does.

Allen Ginsberg (1926-1997) U.S. poet.
