Lip sync

November 2, 2015

Where does contentment lie,
When lips crave,
Or say goodbye?
Where the pillowy comfort,
Of the simple kiss,
Asking nothing,
But a wisp of your breath?

A mere puck of a sound,
Conveying more than any weighty tome,
Or the empty wind of words,
Spoken between the loneliness,
Felt only in a bed for two

Grief

January 2, 2014

Love’s longing is the true foe
Obfuscated by anger’s falsity
Shrouding all beneath
To hide the pain

Lost to a shadowed fury
Outlined by tears like shards
Vacuous in their gasping shower
Empty salt stings on an open wound
