covet

I miss the way we kiss

with tendrils of longing

never truly fulfilled

 

The circumference of

your arms as I lay

my head on your chest

 

Looking up to meet your gaze

and just then I know

you can see the real me

 

Hiding here behind

my smokey eyes

I lie to myself

everyday

I can see The End

right before my eyes,

ears,

hands,

grasping at straws,

sleeping in shadows,

starving with fear

my dear.  The demise

of Mankind is

all around us.

Touch it quick

before it’s gone.

Letters to Thailand (pt. 1)

I dream

of the day

you don’t call me

anymore.

Midnight messages

of delusions that

laugh at the demons

behind my eyes,

at the lies you

never told me.

I scream,

“Goodbye”.

Postcards from Thailand (pt. 2)

Just another Saturday morning

With a beer in my hand

I stand on the brink

Of insecurity feeling

My thoughts spinning

Not winning

this game I’m in.

 

Inside my mind I’ll stay

Until one phrase

Pushes me over

The edge of sanity

Straight into the bottle.

 

Sands of time

Passed around

And out without

Emotions hidden

In whiskey dreams

I sleep to forget.

breathing

Breathe in and out

and in and out

and I falter

Blackness floats

in my vision

around my eyes

becomes one

with my soul

the empty space

in which I hide

and wait

for tomorrow

no such thing

sleep the dreams

 

of peacefulness

 

tranquility becomes me

 

with you and

 

love is the one

 

entity I’ve searched for

 

all these years

city love

you are

 

everything to me

 

I can see

 

tomorrow like

 

heaven at the end

 

of my tunnel

 

silently watching and

 

waiting for peace

STOP

I wish I could

STOP

Do it all over again

STOP

And remember the way

STOP

We dreamed

STOP

And laughed

STOP

and cried

STOP

And tried

STOP

To make this work

this time

gone

 

but never forgotten

 

i tried

 

to find you

 

inside my mind

 

my dirty hands

 

heart full of nothing

 

i missed something

just now

I had a thought,

 

and then it flitted away,

 

leaves blowing down

 

a tired, gray alleyway,

 

followed by a discarded,

 

plastic shopping bag.

 

My mind has gone

 

almost entirely numb.

 

I am playing with fire

 

and waiting to feel.
