Always
kiss me
like it
is the only
thing I will
ever give you.

Stay Awhile

After I’d closed
my eyes last night,
I could have sworn
I felt you sit
on the edge
of the bed.

I didn’t open
my eyes.
I didn’t even trace
my palm across
the well worn path.

I just smiled.
And fell asleep to
the imagined sound
of you taking off
your boots.

In Spite

 

 

And it gets harder

and harder

not to

see you

 

and it’s almost sad

 

because I know

you think

you’re trying

so much harder.

 

I liked it better

and it was easier

 

when you didn’t

try at all

 

when you

told yourself

it was all

for me

 

but never

told me

a thing.

Hum

There’s a word for
how I feel when
I’ve got you
under my
fingertips,

but I think it’s
so old that
it’s lost.

I like
what I do
with you.
And how.
And why.

Chill

The snow has been
falling for hours.

For what seems
like days.

I’m not going
outside.
And I know
you aren’t
either.

But I’m
kinda wishing
you were
not going out

from here
instead of
there.
