There's no song in the wind ~
It's been a million miles since I've heard your voice ~
The leaves fall at someone else's feet ~
The trees sway to lyrics I don't recognize ~
At cliff's edge where we once held hands ~
There is a fog that blankets every emotion under my skin ~
I'm lost and you are gone ~
There's nothing else to do ~
But fall ~~~

Charles Bukowski
little dark girl with
kind eyes
when it comes time to
use the knife
I won't flinch and
i won't blame
as I drive along the shore alone
as the palms wave,
the ugly heavy palms,
as the living does not arrive
as the dead do not leave,
i won't blame you,
i will remember the kisses
our lips raw with love
and how you gave me
everything you had
and how I
offered you what was left of
and I will remember your small room
the feel of you
the light in the window
your records
your books
our morning coffee
our noons our nights
our bodies spilled together
the tiny flowing currents
immediate and forever
your leg my leg
your arm my arm
your smile and the warmth
of you
who made me laugh
little dark girl with kind eyes
you have no
knife. the knife is
mine and i won't use it

i think how we need to be loved as adults stems from our childhood (or lack thereof).

if you were abandoned, you need to be smothered, to know every second that you're adored. but as a child you were always alone, so the very love you crave makes you feel suffocated and crawling white knuckled to get out.

and so this war rages inside of us, until we have exhausted ourselves & perhaps those who were brave enough to extend their hands.

It's been so long,
Since I've written for her,
I apologize,
But I've been too busy,
Kissing the words into her mouth
You taste so good. I'll never stop writing poems on your tongue.
