Delirious, Poetry by L.T. Garvin

Genre: Relationship

Delirious by L.T. Garvin

I escaped
with tiny, shimmering coins
stuffed in my pockets
finally running free
with you and Mad Desire.
I was only one step ahead
of Disaster
gleefully skipping
into midnight madness
and twinkling lights
in downtown trees.
The melodic music
vibrating off thin air
in the syrupy night shadows.
I warned you about
the hot hand of revenge
the need to minuet dance
even with uncertain steps.
We might rather have been
mixed in
with the piano bar folks
drunk on lyrics and static,
sophisticated noise
singing Shangri-la.
But we kept burning
through those nights
like renegade warriors
random and loose
the sense of it all
scorching my empty heart
but you, you never knew
what delirious truly was.
