10 / 20

Ten

Ten times I've shivered on this date
(I hope the few outweigh the the many).
Ten years and twice already
(Either way I feel wrong).
Ten years equals hundreds
(I hope the few outweigh the the many).
Ten years holding onto a thread
(I need new dreams tonight).
Tens years of questions
(It was a reason not an excuse).
But I said nothing at all.

Twenty!

Twenty years have come and gone.
Twenty times on this day.
Twenty times I have tried to make sense.
Twenty times I cannot grasp.
But in these 20 I have at last learned.

There is no dream in which I do not live.
There is no dream in which you do.
There exists no complete thought
in the which you exist.
Your love is an ironic antithesis.

Twenty and now it is thrice.
Twenty and exactly twice.
Twenty and finally time is effecting.
Twenty and now twice, times two.
I hope it's never enough.
