Musings on Love and Loss

Like polar bears on melting ice

we had a season

a summer of tenderness

Now

My face draws in

like winter

Falling leaves for eyes

The spectre of our life follows me

through the empty aisles of the supermarket

cracking jokes, inappropriately

fills the empty chair

eats a hearty meal as

I roll over into dead air

right where

you travelled the length and breadth of me

with the length and breadth of you

I lie in your imprint,

and hum a silent chorus of despair…

Chrysalis Heart

My chrysalis heart as

Dark as midnight

I emerged

Blinking, like a newborn

Dazzled

By the light

 

Your arms my gravity

I tilt to those lips

Forever in falling orbit
