Kiss Me Again Like Wet Dogs

I love you in the rain
Walking lonely along the boulevard
Gazing at all the passing cars;
The glimmer of neon signs
Flash like batting eyes from drugstores.
Neither of us were ever concerned with crime,
Our thoughts were bathed in the sublime
As we made our way down dirty streets,
Somehow a paradise for the lost;
Kiss me again like wet dogs
Straying without hope
Blindly into the night.

You know my addiction for extinction
And everyway I tried to die;
We dug Kierkegaard as well as the philosophy
Of non-judgment and non-injury;
And the poetry of romantic defeat
Was oozing from my pores like sweat
And I was glad you were next to me
To relish the journey of splintered thoughts
Blooming into a bouquet of dangerous dreams.

Nothing resembles such work rather the unique aspect...Exquisite work!
I just read this again, and though I already mentioned it, this line ' You know my addiction for extinction And everyway I tried to die; ' is almost enough to make me weep today...probably would if I weren't so numb..anyway, the point is, may we all be so blessed to be able to find such love where they know the worst thing about you, and it's ok...sometimes I wonder if it's real..great writing Uriah! Always, AMberlee
'You know my addiction for extinction' what a lovely line in such an overwhelming poem...honestly, your work lately has been nothing short of brilliant...pen on my dear, sweet poet... Always, Amberlee
Hey Tiger - you're on a roll today! This is so brilliantly pedestrian (i.e. dirty street) , earthy, real! I absolutely LOVE it!
And the poetry of romantic defeat...... .....To relish the journey of splintered thoughts I love these two lines......I love reading your poems Uriah, they are always so vivid.
