this time

Calculated in refraining from contact.
Halt touch, even thought
I shall only infect and cause
an irrepressible infliction upon you.
As much hatred as solitude forms
a hefty weight in love – love spawns.
This creates a break out of weakness
where I call you and bleed tears.

We never connect for I am guarded and prone
to tell tales of the undesirable – which initially left me alone.
One aspect of my persona is that time and time and time is vital.

Time to get to know me.
Time to get me and loathe me.
Time to forget me, recall me and about time you disown me.
Time to come accustomed, fully fathomed of my faults.
Time has proven the hardest thing to grasp from people of all sorts.

We work in seconds not hours.
We think it’s all chocolates and flowers.
It’s one drink, two drink if nothing – game off.
With me it’s many drinks – releasing pressure valve.
Many more to reclaim your focus.
With me it’s sober days for reflection, depuzzling.
Not many more of these will take place in their place.
It is the acclimatising social cohesion,
this is where I show you what travels my head.
What the cryptic messages said and feel inclined, in fact
insatiable to tell you ‘I love you’.
For better or for worse, it is simply not the point.
In fact it’s the only point as it is the blunt truth
the type of truth we claim to crave.
Time never rearranged, inflamed or corrupted this view.
It just took much time to travel, to get from me to you.

Artist's Description

A self realising statement of my own need for people to give me time before they decide upon their eternal opinion of me. It is very realtionship based as I do not hide my individuality enough during the early stages of relationships and people are quick to find the closest exit. This is more for my own benefit as I have never really been able to put the feeling into words or at least disguise it amongst creative writing. La La La
