remember when
we fell
alone together
down the rabbit hole
in each other’s arms
yet a universe apart?
laughing, crying, yawning
in each other’s arms

time lost rigidity
its flow omnified
silly putty
darkness and infinite light
nothing but you to hold on to
nothing at all

Written: 2017 – A memory of a lost time.

magic boxes in the kitchen

the arctic is but
a doorway away
slowing the rate
at which food decays

you want that dish hot?
well, you’ll just have to wait
two and a half minutes
there’s no need for delay…

don’t ask how or why
just enjoy them each day!
don’t overthink things
just have it your way

but when the power goes out
you’d best eat all your cake
there’ll be less time to have it
so… appreciate

Pilot Light

the flame at my core
this passion for you
sometimes flickers, sizzles and sparks

yet grows all the more
as flames tend to do
and lights up the limitless dark

you left me quite sore
red flared into blue
internally bruising my heart

but blue flames endure
they burn slow and true
and wait to reignite, restart

The Largest Lie

no love lasts forever
that’s the largest lie there is
though you feel it in your…
it’s just oxytocin bliss

just can’t quite remember
oh, so long ago, that kiss
you wanted nothing more
no one else’s love, just his

but time jumped—there to here
now he’s someone you don’t miss
no love lasts forever
that’s the largest lie there is

Modern Love

I’ll never forget
your green eyes
your lips
the epitome of red

in a comfortable chilliness
with a backdrop of stone

your cigarette
I asked for a drag
you reluctantly shared

a few smiles
out of place

the awkward hug
you kissed my cheek
at least
I think you did

I’ll never forget
how you told me (via text)
that I never apologized

in the same fashion
that I did apologize (via text)

but back to your eyes

they’re lovely
