STEPS

 

I walked slowly
to spend more of eternity
with you, and

when you turned to
usher me closer
what you didn’t realise
was that I was
already
there

TO HAUNT

 

These long silences
used to haunt me –
now every ghost
of every memory
comforts me wisely
instead.

IT WAS LIKE

It Was Like

It was like
you were something
I should not permit myself to see
but the voyeur I make no apologies
for becoming
stripped you down to bare flesh
fully clothed
while I peeked between the slats
of fact and fancy.

I HAVE LOST

I Have Lost

I have lost
you: lost myself
in the search
to find us both.

MY PASSING

My Passing

Come lay with me
so that I
with any luck at all
pass into the night
– yours, being the last face
I shall ever desire to see.

VOCAL

 

I can be silent
but vocal
if you only had eyes
to listen.

EVENTUALLY

Eventually

Every second we touch
leads us closer
to separation.

I would rather watch
for there is no end
in sight
to this vision.

ENDLESS PATH

concrete emotion
part water, part sand,
stiff and retrodden
imprinted by hand

unbroken dazing
obsessive addiction
weathered disfigurement
stolen ambition

frozen with purpose
externally veined
denied all surrender
exhausted terrain

captured in burden
expressionless pain
mindless estrangement
decisively plain

distantly suffering
obsessive beliefs
helpless remorse
escaping relief

painful receding
numbless appeasement
gone now, the bleeding
here, quiet, the easement

THE WORDS ARE

 

The words are there
wrapped around a tongue
as dream-hungry
as the one I have
of you

SILENT WORDS

Silent Words

Every word you don’t speak
is simply one more
that I would happily wait a lifetime
in silence
to hear

KNIT

Knot

You could be made of
the fanciest yarn that
binds forever
your empty space
and you would still
knit me a reason
to love everything
you were actually not

LOVE RAPTURE

Love Rapture

my fingers
trace your outline;
every
hardened wave
and liquid curve
the perfect shape
to precisely enclose
my rapturous heart

LIGHT AND DARK

Light and Dark

There might be darkness
where there is no light
but there surely
cannot be me
if there is no you
