unpromise me forever;
abandoned lovelorn that I've become,
I need to be free from
the paradox of your absent

A memory that brings sharp pangs.
A better-left-empty cup of coffee.
A Winter that promises to get colder.
Today, a high of -10° degrees.
And then she steps into the room.
Into my world.
A flower in perpetual bloom,
A smile that outshines stars
A laugh that radiates the dark.
Today,  sparks fly deep in my heart
And I again feel warmth.

Don't force yourself to forget.
leaves still fall in Autumn,
And flowers still bud in spring.

My fingers tickle against
The soft fibers of the first page
In a manuscript written with
dedicated ardence. I
admire the ink uncials, left behind
By eloquent whispers passed from
Your eyes, to My lips.
From your tongue
To my skin.
Salacious words succulent
That permeate the thick paper,
Like heavy breaths from a prurient
I savor the memory,
Turning over the page to find
Blank linen sheets left awaiting,
for letters and punctuation
Until, poem after poem,
A new chapter again
we commence.

I have no tears left for grief.
Instead I write
Them down in pitch black ink.
I have no more tears to cry.


I have no voice left to weep.
Instead I pluck Harp strings
that sigh
Soft songs into the lonely nights.
Have no voice left to cry.

We love to see those
special ones we love
Make changes for us.

during the evolution,
Did we remember to
Love who they are?

Are they still deep down
The same one we fell in love with?
Or did we lose them while
Sculpting them into a new image

butterflies that fluttered
in your heart after our eyes met,
Have bloomed into carnations
Full of stars constellated
With passion between
your thighs.
can feel the heat
of your unseen
As it begins to rise
As the sun on the horizon
until your sensuous reaches zenith
and I witness
Your flower petals kaleidoscope and unfurl
As you release sweet nectar that pearls,
with aromatic efflorescence,
Onto the the surface
Of my stamen
