Tall Buildings… [POEM]

Love is like
TALL BUILDINGS
standing and risen above
hovering
covering you
sunlight shadowing through

like the architecture behind a brilliant skyline,
A wonder to view

designed and planned
built by hands,
spanned across landscapes,

Safe

love is like the concrete mountains
erected
My heart has a doorman
My brain will protect it,
I think

My emotions are like floors
My thoughts being an elevator
sometimes they don’t speak

I have to take the stairs

so many rooms and windows
unoccupied spaces
available signs in the lobby of My imagination
saying something is vacant,

No one qualifies,
rejected application

Love is like a skyscraper,
cloud chasing

blueprints and permits
persistent agendas
inspections
for structural integrity
contracts
and then,
then love is approved

TALL BUILDINGS
crowded along favorite crosswalks
behind bridges
in the backdrop of portraits,
of planned visits

My heart only knows tourists
passers-by for my spectacular history
time capsule artifact
My patience is mystery

I wait in one place

hoping that you notice TALL BUILDINGS
or like them enough
to distinguish the difference
and come inside,
just once

and stay forever

Love is like TALL BUILDINGS
that shield you from weather
whether slight or storm
at least stand inside of
or behind
find it respite and warm
or shade
or cool,

Built by genius
or Fool

Love is like TALL BUILDINGS
that get torn down
or imploded
wrecking ball practice
or exploded
violated, coded
brought
and sold
dilapidated,
molded
folded

Condemned
Abandoned
Neglected,

then resurrected

Love comes back
constructed
to specification,
like
TALL BUILDINGS.
