Guitar

Perhaps in place of you I’ve found the guitar, not the same, not as lovely but it’s the only thing i love now each sustained note i pluck, a sustained cry out for you It’s lovely curve a substitute for the warmth of your body, I hug in place of you—and gently caress its strings, […]

Craters

Are you in pain? With all the holes and craters Embedded in your Body   You look perfect As we have always known you And we forget that which shaped you The way you are   We forget That you might still hurt Are you ok? My dear moon

Beautifully sad

Why do we often find beauty in sadness? Do we find humanity amid all the pain and suffering? Does it remind us that we feel, that we are mere mortals with flesh and blood? Perhaps it is a way of saying that “hey it’s ok”, we don’t have to be strong all the time.

I wish you would get drunk

Hauntings

The Dance

Time invited me for a dance to an awkward tune Our feets unsynced stacking on one other as we attempted to dance The beats struggle My heart fluttered I wonder if we’ll actually dance Will it get better? Will it get better? Over time and over you   Note : Will time heal? Heal you? Heal me? Will it? […]

The Tattoo

In each stroke a memory lies The needle pokes The pain reigns And I recall snippets of us Now gone   I relished in the pain for I lived in that moment Pain and love has come to be my best friends   The last stroke The last dance The love now sealed In eternity
