I breathe a sigh of relief
As I hear you let out a deep
And raspy breath -
The day has conquered your mind
And finally
You are asleep

I have sealed my life
Into yours
A promise to serve and cherish
To nurture and care

As you are content
As am I
As you suffer
So must I

Content in your presence
And inspired by your life
Your treasured soul

Sleep
A note to my sleeping wife - how my love for you grows daily.

my love weaves a tapestry to your heart
each stitch, an eternal memory
of delight in another

an embrace leading to a smile
of beauty in the fabric, yours
and mine to behold

softness of hands, fingertips touching
tender caresses on jawlines
sparking deep feelings

strength in our bond, carried in years
ebbing and flowing as one
adoration in affection

words and whispers in devotion
threads binding together
a language of ours alone
Dedicated to my one...
This long life has been
informed by love.  We shared
each other Oh! for so
short a time.

Like fruit we hung onto
the sweet drops of new
nectar's night.
We peeled each other
to the pink skin of sighs.

It was a delicate scent
when blown into the
stars quiet Space.  We
sped into the walls of
destiny and crashed
in the pulp of sorrow.

But I miss you in this
orchard of dessicated
memories.

I am rawed by the thought
of you.

I just need some quiet
Some peace
Because these voices are screaming at me tearing me apart
Just one day to not be told how worthless I've become
These voices are tormenting me making me insane
I just want some peace and quiet
Even just one day
Self talk, our own demise
Mass shootings of morality
Guns make the man
Massacre happily
Ignorance leading the blind
Another casualty
Johnny has issues
Got an AR15
Arm everyone!
(EUREKA!!!)
More guns are what we need
Who gives a **** about Johnny and his mental instability
He’s got a gun!
That’s all he’ll ever need
Ammunition
A few hundred rounds
He kills responsibly  
A few hundred rounds
Just another day
Another massacre
Another life
How many more people have to die

lay in satin sheets: I'm longing to be near my dear somebody, who lies his head on a cotton pillow / my heart is hopeful to find some peace tonight with your ghostly arms. a sky blue my body drives over, filling up space in your heart, and I wouldn't mind taking up all the space: crevices filled with sunlight and this love. I reach up to grip the branches, you and your few gray hairs, charm me like something new; he's my old man, with creases in the way he does things; fabric plate shifting each direction my hips churn: my heart stumbles when I feel your wind, someone who I think I might need, and I'd want to be tied and true to you; I'm always true to you, darling, in my mind. blackened halls and pillows, something else to do. and when it is gone, the eyelashes I cry to and the colors of the walls are too white;

I want your tears to rain on me

To pour down my cheeks

I want to feel the salt of your pain

Scouring away wrinkled years

I want to drown in the truth of you

Parching tongue, renewing thirst

I want to savor the sweetness of love

Quenching bitterness

The pain stings deeper than ever before
I'm not sure what I've done in this life or a past life to get dealt this hand
The winds howl, as the storm surges on inside of me
I just want to burry myself then keep on digging
Because maybe the darkness or silence will accept me
Maybe I cant fight anymore
Forgetting what it was I was even fighting for
Because I loved,
Oh my God did I love
Without boundaries or false pretence
With pure acceptance and irrefutable forgiveness
The love was pure
The pain that drives into me, will send me to madness
I want to be missed like I miss you Because by God do I miss you
Where is my silver lining
Love lost
