adage
rating: +17+x

I’m 17 today.
I see a pretty figure, maybe five foot six.
I spot another, staring at its tender skin.
I’m stepping closer, relishing the risk coming with it.
Living in the moment, never stepping away.
It’s like an adage from the old days.
“Out of sight, out of mind”

I’m 24 today.
I swallow two pills, both unlabeled.
I look out the window, to the lights of LA;
I’m young, I’m dumb, I can’t even drive.
Opportunity stares at me, I spit in its face.
It’s like an adage from the old days.
“Out of sight, out of mind”

I’m 32 today.
I see ivy pathways engrossing my skin.
I can’t step away, I get lost in the cobblestone path.
I’m trying to leave the leech of love, it traps me in, though I don’t mind.
Velenda’s grasp entangles me, and I embrace it within me.
It’s like an adage from the old days.
“Out of sight, out of mind”

I’m 40 now.
I look into Velenda’s eyes, calling out to me.
I see the look in her face, a desperate plea, a gambit.
I’m seeing her pain, but I’m not feeling her way.
Everything isn’t the same, but I ignore it and give her a bouquet.
It’s like an adage from the old days.
“Out of sight, out of mind”

I’m 53 now.
Velenda left me, but strangely, I don’t feel free.
The cliffside gazes into me, it pierces into my soul.
The mist of the sea makes me scream.
But perhaps what I needed.
Was not to let everything get to me.
It’s not quite like an adage from the old days.
“Out of sight, out of mind”
