Pilot Light

the flame at my core
this passion for you
sometimes flickered, sizzled and sparked

yet grew all the more
as flames tend to do
and lit up the limitless dark

you left me quite sore
(red dwindled to blue)
internally burning 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
