Poem: February Sixth

You rarely come by
to this place of me;
peruse memories,
digitally etched
in silicon stone.

Thoughtlessly you read.
The words distracting
you from the meaning
buried deep inside
my rhythm and rhyme.

I see your traces
in all the places
you touch as you pass.
Fingerprints on glass;
shredded photographs.

You never stay long.
I feel I’ve done wrong
when you run away
and won’t even say
why you could’t stay.

These words I borrow:
‘Parting sweet sorrow’
fills my every hour,
drives me to despair;
life is so unfair!

When will you return?
When will you?
When will?
When?
?
.

Poem: February Fifth

You cannot
nor should you ever
be the things
I need and want
only because
I need and want…

You can be
whatever you thought
in your heart
of need and want
only because
you need and want…

We are as
we are together
or apart
in need and want
only because
there is need and want…

Let us remain
lingering here
or never
in need and want
only because
we need and want…

And should
we fade away
into dark
in need and want
let it be
for choice of heart.

Poem: February Third

It is not your kisses
I miss the most.

It is simply
Those moments
that slip past
unmarked
unremarkable
mundane minutiae
of you and I
eating dinner
doing dishes
drinking tea…

I long for the
extra ordinary
times intermingled
with you laughing.

I reminisce
for the bliss
of the spaces
in between the
tangled sheets:
not the rising
not the falling
not the glory…

I simply miss
simply you
simply me
converging
conversing
simply content.

Poem: February Second

Day breaks
jagged on the eastern sky
splinters of sun
bleeding clouds
throbbing red

Today
we awaken slowly wisely
and sees no shadows
only the blessed hope
that time will
fulfill our usual journey
around our sun

Tomorrow
we will complain
of the cold snow
forgetting what
lies waiting
beneath booted feet
the promise
of flowers
blossoming
once more!
