debating to end
my war against age

trying to find
trying to find
in my mind your last words
from years ago
as thunder rolls in
from the west

mentally
mentally
and physically exhausted
from the night
traveling around the world
through strangers - dream after dream
.


It's getting to where I write my work on scraps out of my pockets. When it's on my mind, I have to get it down or it will be gone. Maybe some day my trash will be worth something. :)

she sings to me
she sings to me,
the mockingbird at midnight
as I stare
at empty paper~
nothing to give her

my dreams,
like a group of fireflies,
hang over my head
partially seen,
too short to remember

shadows spread
Do you remember the night in the park, years ago, when our futures took a different direction? We saw the moon, the one I see now, look down at us. Even though its shape and color has changed so many times, its real face never has - nor have ours...

shadows spread

for a moment,
all in one room,
voices
of four different people
that were silent when we met
,
happy 18th anniversary
