Love dies


like a wildfire spreading
vengeful words burst into flames
the shame, the shame
nothing stays, but everything remains the same
always the never-ever, again and again

ashes to ashes and lust to dust
a wry reality
love dies a madman's death
at first deliriously happy
at last deliriously sad

nighttime sounds: an owl in a tree,
wind rustling the remaining leaves
gnarly branches,
black against the moon

the sweetest dreams,
taking residence in my heart

you & I
an impossible possibility
the sheets will not reveal my secrets


In silence

never would there evermore
a song upon a breeze
for music has forsaken us
went lost among the trees

now darkness has surrounded us
and vanquished all the light
in silence now we just await
the visitor in the night
