Random Poem:

fleeting thoughts in a library hallway
vida

i've condensed a thousand words to get to you
 1
crisscrossed a dozen libraries
 2
tiptoed right down to the deepest hues,
 3
and yes, sleep-walks against me
 4
but here I've stood in a hundred stances,
 5
arrested by my own commonsenses
 6
next to the personal growth aisle...
 7
and
 8
these fluorescent tubes flicker like my heart,
 9
tomorrow's rage against today
 10
is you, about ten feet away...
 11
 
 
so say, if your heart is half-opened
 12
then the universe is mine
 13
or
 14
if your eyes are half-sentences
 15
then I'll read between the lines
 16
