Forgive me



forgive me my fateful delusions
my heart and mind weary - hopelessly lost
I made this glass house my home

forgive me my visibility
my soul consumed by fear - feeble
I tried to take cover but failed

forgive me my whispered words
my voice without courage - wavering
I started thinking aloud
a distant sound in a crowd

forgive me making peace with death
my body and mind far too tired and torn
for muted anger no more room

forgive me my cowardliness
my mind not kind nor brave
for I alone dug my grave
- willingly

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

casting my eyes to ground
I find our morning shadows fading
dark clouds have gathered to shade our sun
we own our separate thoughts
both wrought with guilt

I love you
still
but my heart beats out of sync

let the rain pour down
I am now ready to drown
