April 16th

I never meant to make you cry

I presume love would exalt us
that hope will direct our growth
with grace to shelter our hearts
and faith to an everlasting us….

If you could rip my chest open
you’d know it’s constantly broken
from the moment we’ve been apart
to this day I’m breathing my heart

We- were both shattered to pieces
I can not feel something, you can not
and if I have mourned a thousand nights
you dreaded light when it yields to the dusk

I feel them all, yet more-
you succumbed to desolation’s call
We didn’t mean to torment us
and this love to burn us whole-

still, a journey we bravely walked on
by the end of my life, I’ll engross a history
where once upon a time, there was you and me
that even destiny, would never disagree….

“I never meant to make you cry”-
was all you could say, you know what’s better?
I know we both made each other cry
and to top that? We agreed we’d do it over
if it meant together, once more…

April 11th


And if distance
could witness
how we,
separately ache-
longing to be together…

would it still,
bitterly deny us-
could it possibly,
lovingly spare us-

of spaceless moments
of longest series of seconds
to cure this ache-
of yearning

to be closer,
to one another?
