hello little gnat
flying so small
in my ear,
with a noise like that

in my neck, in my ear,
clever little thing
no one else can hear you
or see your buzzing wings.

this side that side
round you go
buzzing in my ear
nobody will know

where did we go
so far across oceans
that we forgot about the fruit
of our backyard tree?
I want to go somewhere
despite this proclamation
Grace May 4
I am dust, a shell, a forgotten sweater
unravelling in darkness
ennui is stuck
inside of me

it takes so much to stay away
I am addicted but I say
I can stop at anytime
huh... remember when you were mine?

it takes so much for me to be
smiling in this happy weather
the sun is warm but I do not feel it
rather, I think to when we were together.

it takes too much out of me
but this is self inflicted
like tides upon the shore,
without my moon I am conflicted.
with too much room, I am somehow restricted.

they were both blindfolded;

one could shoot and the other promised he could.

pity
is
the
leftovers
given
to
the
swine
and
it
is
only
filling
w­hen
you
offer
a
hand
.

star crossed lovers
as romeo loved juliet
and a bird loves the dawn
and a country song sings of carrying on
as persephone loved hades
and patroclus loved war
and as children so love the dark of the moor
as orpheus so honours the snake that took his love
and as mourning in twilight is sung by the dove
by and by lust turns to love turns to pain
as prometheus looks forward
to the raven in the rain
