House of Cards

her name and mine enveloped
in the bliss of letters,
the curly Q's, the dead end
white ghost limbs on the
threshold of enclosure,
and slow, so slow,
the lies building
rising up,  
walling us in this
house of cards-
every screech every
faint murmur threatens
to let it all come
crashing down.
so we lie still,
we do not breathe.
waiting for a gentle
breeze to unseal  
that dream:

title is the same as a movie about an 'is she or isn't she autistic' child which was really poorly done.  i'm sorry this interferes with my perspective.  i really hated that movie.

me, love? no.

the Q and D was just me trying to be clever. Translates to QED.

but i do like the way things just seemed to come togethor with this poem, it seemed quite natural.

ps: marry me jen. i am yours. FOREVER. nah. maybe for a year or two.

umm, thanks for the comments guys.
