Hey, Al is not a who...Al is a what.   This is not a suicidal poem.  

I find it difficult to keep my thoughts to myself.  And I guess, if I will spend some time with Al, then maybe...just maybe, I can be what I'm hoping I'd be like even just for once.  My tongue caused me a lot of altercations with friends and partner.  I just wanna seal my lips even just for a minute so I can think of better things to say, or do.

umm... right. i always thought poetry was meant to have a meaning... or maybe im wrong and your right- maybe it is meant to be sensless babbling. 'organs moveable yet dwells on vertebrates'? please explain this, and please tell me the point in posting something like this, i would love to know...

It could be senseless for you but not for me and my partner...I think I'm just fortunate that he understood this poem but it also took him a few days before he was able to really fathom the "actual imagery" (if theres' such a thing).

And for "organs movable yet dwells on vertebrates", hmm...you won't clearly understand the point if you won't decipher the meaning of the entire stanza.  :) First 2 lines are enough to make the next 2 lines comprehensible.  :)

I nag a lot...seems that I was born to 'blah, blah,blah'.  And with al's presence, for the very first time, I was silent.  Now I know what to do when my partner wants a peaceful time with me.
