April PAD Challenge — Day Twenty-Eight

April 28, 2015

prompt: Two for Tuesday — write a “matter” poem/write an “anti-matter” poem

Once Everything Mattered

like the fusion of two bodies
in a slow grind on silk sheets
slick with sweat and saliva

like the merger of two minds
in an instant moment of awareness
a great AHA! shared together

like the rhythm of two hearts
in a rocky ride on rough roads
rift with righteousness and resolve

like the alarm of two voices
in an angered shrill of defiance
the bleating of dying love

once everything mattered
the ‘we’ joined as one
now only I matter, alone
