This Poet's Dream

These are the fluid lines that spill forth…

Month: February, 2014

I Miss You, Love

8:35 a.m. and I am
Wide awake
Sun deceives my windows
It is is still cold
I wish for sleep
and your kisses
Your warmth
and your touch
I find pillows
I find silence


Haiku #43

Listening for you
The turn of the key, open
Is my heart for you

Breaking Up Is Hard To Do

Your love hit me.
Fast and hard.
I thought
Uh, oh. I’m in trouble.
And trouble I found.

Now the days are getting longer
the nights shorter.
Both the season
and your absence
keep sleep at bay.

You have taught me many things.
We have shared the deepest love
I have ever known.
You have shown me what it means
to be loved.

I weep.
I breathe.
I distract myself
With little things.

Fixing the horn
Of the Unicorn I made
When I was 15.
Eating soup.
Making tea.
Weeping more.

My joy, my spark, my heart
Have all been replaced.
I know.
I know.
Time will help.
Friends will help.
My birthday will come.
Summer too.

Yet the space inside me
Will never be the same again.

Haiku #42

Mornings when I wake
To find your side is pillows
I cry into them

Choose My Adventure

A heart divided between love and and loss
Closed against my will all too soon
Can I open this door again?

I taste nothing on my tongue
My smile has faded
And the spark has been extinguished from my eye

The full moon shines
Yet with each step
My spirit limps behind me

The day of your exit promises
Only a broken heart
And sandpaper eyes

Do I stand by and watch?
Do I just get over it?
Do I leap into the abyss of the unknown?

Haiku #41

My heart has fallen
At the intersections
Of love, lust, and grief

Welcome To Mercury Retrograde

The chasm has received me,
The floor has given way,
Please, wings, unfurl,
Before I am drowned in the roiling sea.

Haiku #40

Heart and mind reeling
Fear has opportunity
Yet the eye sees more
