Kensi 'n' Tom - Conversations with a stranger

:: Just talking - TB

He’s talking,
He’s bleeding,
Becoming weaker with every word.

He’s talking,
He’s conceding,
He thought you hadn’t heard.

He’s talking,
He’s crying,
Tears making things blurred.

He’s talking,
You’re not listening,
Again, his words have been spurned.



:: Paper - KC

Happy anniversary,
It's been a year.
You left the gate to the zoo
open,
my wild thing
looking for shelter
walked in.

We don't usually talk on a Tuesday
- what happened to "No talk Tuesday"?
What's the last dream you remember?
Are you already awake?
How do you see me?
if you could grow anything from your belly button,
what would it be?

You do beautiful things here,
inside me, I mean.

  1. Tom's story I can relate to, and your "Paper" poem is certainly interesting, especially the question "If you could grow anything from your belly button, what would it be?" Definitely something unique.

    1. Kenn, all the questions in 'Paper' are actually questions Tom once asked me. I guess my poem is more his than mine. ^_^

  2. your repetition works just fine in the first movement and resonates the wit of your question about the "belly button"

    Love the intimacy of these lines. The speaker is asking so deeply, caring for thing other might never wonder about...

  10. The ending of your poem is very sweet - (I love they are his questions) and his poem seems like roles reversed - but it's nice that a guy tries so hard to communicate.
