“I was late for this, late for that,
Late for the love of my life
And when I die alone,
When I die alone,
When I die, I’ll be on time”-Cleopatra, The Lumineers

In my rush to respond
Grammar is forgotten,
my spellings are skewed
and if you knew me, you’d know
why I felt the need to
write a poem asking if
you understand
that
in my haste,
I forget that you dictate
the consequences of
my sentences;
that the answers I don’t give
are the ones that give
too much away;
that not being late is not
the same as being there
at the right moment
just as not being cold is not
the same as being warm.

      1. Thank you very much. I find it really surprising how even I had used a similar Baskerville theme for my first ‘poetry’ blog “Songs of a Ruin”. Now I have turned it into a book.
        I guess, we have a knack for the awesome. High five stranger! πŸ™‚
