Anticipatory Love – Rahul Gauer (Smoke Words Every Day)

Dissociation in style
I walk on reflected clouds
It’s a metaphorical living
I wish I could live on the ground
I always wander in the spaces
Liminal places of the nether world
where the shape of a snow is intact
and the anticipation of a surprise still better
than the surprise of you visiting
where you don’t usually visit
Usually i’m the first to arrive and
the last to depart
I walk away from closure
and run from the memories
of your touch
just to live
a little life of existing
where the potential of us
was precious and better
than the reality of not being good enough

I am a Social Worker by day and an artist/writer by night. I use the written word in an attempt to make sense of the secret worlds and dysfunctional dynamics that lurk beneath the facades of our daily interactions. I am not sure how my writing styles are characterized, nor am I overly concerned about it. I am immensely enthusiastic about music and often connect better with songs than I do people. I also have an intense appreciation for quality wines and whiskies, frequently consuming them in excess. I like things that smell good and struggle to manage the symptoms of a life-long relationship with depression. So, why "grumpygorman"? Spend some time here and find out...
