Sitting alone in the congealing dusk that falls slowly, determinedly, across the horizon over the river, opening myself to whatever feelings are abroad on this dying autumn Sunday, my mind slips back a few decades, a few years, a few months, remembering days of unworthiness, nights of regret, hours of repentance Id like to forget.
Old ghosts of longing roam unbidden through the wilderness of my emotions. Pictures of lovers, some real and some not, crowd my consciousness as I contemplate a future of emptybed blues suffused with harsh mornings, anesthetized nights, roiling and rocking through the unending alienation of separateness, squarepegdom, misfittability and all the rest of that shit, only wishing for the occasional hand to hold, chest to caress, shoulder to sleep on during the numbcold nights of millennium winters.
I have abandoned the dream of a love everlasting, relinquished belief in a life everlasting, have come to embrace the aloneness of me slipped into the rough cloak of reality. Surrendering calmly to nighttimes siren pull, knowing theres more but incapable of finding or perhaps recognizing it, I prepare to settle for the will-o-the-wisp embraces of a man who never was and never will be, love neverlasting amen. 2012 RC deWinter
