Woes of a Logical Person: III

How am I supposed to get over you
When you can't even promise to forget mii


How am I supposed to move on****!8****
When your scent still lingers on my skin

How am I supposed to "see other people"
When I am just beginning to see you

How am I supposed to dream again*!*8***
When you are still the man of my dreams

How am I supposed to plan forever
When forever doesn't include you


How am I supposed to love again***** ****
When I haven't even fallen in love with you

I hope I'm not off topic...here's one

Another day had pass,
my feelings are still the same.
It has been a while,
since I've said your sweet name.

Why is it like this?
What did I do wrong?
When will these feelings end?
I've waited far too long.

My thoughts are fading,
the answers I can't find.
Oh! how can I get,
you out of my mind?

The words are running out,
there's nothing else to do.
But to wait and to hope,
that I'll get over you.

Can my heart move on,
without another tear?
Will my emotions heal,
if you come near.

If these feelings die,
as it flows to the stream.
Will I ever wake up,
from this endless dream?

nice post

Hmmm this is a bit of a contradiction in terms which wouldn't be true for a "logical person".

A lot of the lines are almost in direct contradiction to the other and why would any of it matter if you weren't in love? If the last line read "when I've just fallen in love with you" then I'd understand why it's disjointed and why its the woes of a logical person cos logic flies out of the window when Love comes into the picture.

I like the 2nd one though ;-)

Noni Moss said...

btw - totally loving the layout of your blog - the upside landscapes are ... very interesting. :-D

Would you mind terribly if i ripped the code for your poll and the music? I've been looking for something similar and yours is the best I've seen so far.

Kafo said...

@ noni:
that is what makes it a woe of a logical person. It doesn't make sense, it doesn't add up.
The disjointedness is not only in the words but also in the set up. That's why one thought starts on one side and another on the alternate side.

You hit the nail on the head with the whole love thing. You realize you have to get over this person and move on but u are like WAIT i never did FALL for u. It doesn't make sense.

if one acknowledges that they have just falling in love with a person then the preceding five sections make sense but it is not supposed to.


that is what makes it a problem to a logical person.

but yeah u hit the nail on the head but from another angle

about the poll and music NO PROBLEMO

This is my fav one.
It's short and to the point.
It's like a running dicothomy..

It reads like...
how can I see past you when I'm just beginning to see.
like a blind person just regainning their site and your face finally coming into focus.

Like a child being asked to love another woman as a mother.
Like I'm just learning what relationships are about, I'm just learning how to shed my inhibitions with you. I'm not there yet, but with you I had started the process... how do I do it without you?

Like doesn't this guy realise that I want him, I want him to be that guy, I want him to be the one that I get free with. I want him to be the best experience, the patient one, the one who gets me out of my shell?.
It might not last forever, but i want to make better memories with him, I don't want to lose myself but I want to loose myself.
I'm sure but unsure.
How am I supposed to start this process over again, when I was building up to get there with you?

You are the essence of what I told myself I want, you embody that which I should fall in love with, you are what I told myself, the thin/type that I would fall in love with.
And since I haven;t fallen in love with you, I figured it's a matter of time, so how can I fall in love with someone else, when I didn't fall in love with you?..


That's how I read it... brilliant Kafo... brilliant!

DiAmOnD hawk said...

Hmmm...Kafo and her deep contrasting poetry...(in-te-resting)...

The Life of a Stranger called me said...

kafo you lost me in this one, this was very deep, but you left me asking questions in the end. Infact by the end, I was wondering if what I felt through the naration was true. WOW.

Miss Opeke said...

"How am I supposed to love again, when I haven't even fallen in love with you..."
