TELEPHONE

When we were kids, You called me on the telephone, and when you did, for a minute I felt less alone. Now that we’re grown, what fills my ear? All that I can hear — just a dial tone. Turning the page, it curls… Continue Reading “TELEPHONE”

INTIMATE

Lips locked up like they’re glued. Color me blue, I’ll paint you too. Three words to say, “I miss you.” “I’m sorry,” I can say with two. I promise, someday I’ll follow through. Drive alone, eyes up on the rear view. Worlds apart but… Continue Reading “INTIMATE”

HUNTED

Mapping my way with feelings, Stumbling, head is reeling. Shadow of doubt still creeping, Blood leaking through clenched teeth. Misinterpreting meanings, This trail is so misleading. Glass in my feet, keeps bleeding, Marking my way through this dream. When will I find my way… Continue Reading “HUNTED”

PILLOW

One thing that I know: for your cheek, my chest is so the perfect pillow.

NAP

Take a nap with me. Let the sound of our breathing carry you to sleep.

WOLF MOTHER’S MANTRA

They scour our kingdom, the searing scent of spent gunpowder, erecting their stone towers, and hiding inside them like cowards. These are your final hours. Imagine the forgotten spring’s flower and endless afternoon rain showers. May your flesh grant power, May our enemies be… Continue Reading “WOLF MOTHER’S MANTRA”

RANDOM ENCOUNTER

She’s always so articulate, her voice: my favorite instrument, never a hint of dissonance no matter the predicament. Her iris exhausts the infinite and her mind mirrors her magnificence. Her smile is brilliant and not so innocent. Her touch: unrivaled among stimulants, unable to… Continue Reading “RANDOM ENCOUNTER”
