Man of Steel

24 Apr

Man of Steel

 

I feel nothing

I am a man of steel.

.

I do not care

If I never hear from you

Again.

I am not your friend.

.

I feel nothing

I am a man of steel.

.

Don’t want to

Ever hear your voice

on the phone.

I’d rather be alone.

.

I feel nothing

I am a man of steel.

.

I do not care

If you never write me

A word.

Not a word.

.

I feel nothing

I am a man of steel.

.

Don’t want to

Even remember the nights

We shared.

I just don’t care.

.

I am a man of steel

I feel nothing.

.

This poem was written at the painful end of a relationship.  Its short, clipped, simplistic style is intentional.  Only the reader can decide if I meant what I wrote.

(Incidentally the painting is by a talented artist called Anne Magill.  I hope she doesn’t mind me stealing it).

    Ah, if only we could feel (or not feel) what we wished sometimes…

      Yes. Not to feel. But then without the highs and lows, it would be dull.

    I would love to have the reading. Send please. Love affairs often live on in our cherished memories. They are born out of need, and end when its time. Its not always what we wish, but it is part of loving.

        Also, I have to admit, this makes me think of cock.
        too blunt? I think thats so American of me.
        To giggle like a teenager at some dirty euphemism.
        But perhaps this is just a lucky side effect.

    But even Superman has an alter ego.
    I’d like to think that it is the human who is speaking here. Are you in so much denial? 🙂
