i am derivative; no:
noodleman

i am not derivative
 1
 
i am
 2
the same
 3
as i always
 4
was, still wearing
 5
nothing but regret
 6
in this rain
 7
of you, for you
 8
 
i am a fool,
 9
 
seeing nothing but
 10
a blind man's cherished
 11
memory
 12
of a long-ago single sunset,
 13
worn and greyed with age
 14
a watercolor page
 15
forgot within
 16
a tome i can
 17
no longer read
 18
 
i have forgotten how
 19
 
to see the beauty in the space
 20
between, to hear the song
 21
of you,
 22
the secret
 23
glance you gave,
 24
you give
 25
so furtively,
 26
so rarely
 27
now.
 28
 
And so your laughter
 29
tinkles still, but not like bells
 30
that i recall:
 31
there is a hollow timbre
 32
to the note,
 33
an edge that cuts
 34
fine lines into my tongue,
 35
my eyes,
 36
and i bleed
 37
quietly for you,
 38
of you.
