impossible

It’s true

I’m hopeless

Hopelessly infatuated

With impossibilities

The reason being, simply

Everything else there is

Or ever was

Or ever will be

Fucking      b o r e s       me

It’s true

I’m impossible

Impossibly hopeful

For opposition

The reason being, simply

Everyone else there is

Or ever was

Or ever will be

Fucking        f a i l s        me

  1. This is fucken! amazing write.

    These lines got me:

    “It’s true

    I’m impossible

    Impossibly hopeful

    Or ever will be

    A metaphor of everything that’s impossible in life and things that have failed me or otherwise.

    I hope I understood the poem and the message behind it. If I was way off please let me know.

    1. You understood it exactly as it intended! Bravo! It’s about several connecting themes. Our hope in others, our expectations, the way certain people let us down, but also how our fascination with the “unattainable” tends to lead us to disappointment. I love that you always tune right into the metaphor!!!

      1. I know the feeling exactly.

        The thought of certain people letting us down is disappointing and very frustrating.

        Say, I just noticed something. I’m probably the only person on your blog that reads and comments on your work.

        Did you noticed that as well?

        🙂

      2. I have readership. But as of late, comment wise, yes. One of my most avid commenters recently migrated to a more professional website to promote his upcoming book of poetry. I get a few comments here and there on my work, which is always appreciated. It often depends on the subject matter – when/how it speaks to certain people. I’ve always envied how active your comments section is! People definitely feel more comfortable (or inspired perhaps) to discuss over on your page!

  2. Love this:
    Hopelessly infatuated
    With impossibilities
    This has such a feminist power to it – screw bring hopelessly infatuated in a weak or “loved up” way, here’s to bring infatuated with life, it’s possibilities, and all that we can be.

    1. It’s exactly the meaning. You always see right to the heart of it. We’re fascinated by the impossibles, aren’t we? The forbidden fruits. The stars that we can’t and won’t ever come close to.
