Ambiguity

Are we not meant for mystery
that we wander the corridors of our hearts—
Searching for love

Vespers

Vespers

Wake me with a kiss,
and stir my dreams with lips brush.
Might that I feel–
the soft, tender press–of loves flower.
Between the unturned  pages
of my heart

It has been long–I think, since I held you.
And wrapped myself warmly
Within the soft, white blanket of your skin.

Out of the distance, through my darkness,
I listened quietly for the solitude in your summer’s night song.
And yet I never knew where upon your heart did lie.
Had it only belonged to me, for in that fleeting moment I knew
That I was never truly
Alone

Plush

Plush

Thus awakened
within arms womb–Embraced.
I am locked timelessly in amniotic warmth
Without condition–Immaculate
Therefore suspended–I am thus weightless
except for the delicate influence
Of a whisper

Elegy

Elegy

Then so the beauty of life lies not in its living–but in its dying.
Where we find solace in the splendor of regret.
Thus we must suffer gracefully, yet gladly, as we relive our memories.
And like them–sparkle, before we fade.

Mistress

Mistress

My comfort does lie not
in the compassion of your companionship,
even as I lay the weight of my heart on your shoulder,
but in the deep knowledge of the promise
that you will never say
“I love you.”
