Trailing the Sorrow
I don’t want you to love me I’m fading like autumn leaves from the trees My skinny stalks, and knobby knees Notoriously unfashionable, like trends Faded in ink smeared magazine, the gloss Lipstick on a bathroom mirror, removed By the rub of an elbow, traces of DNA The smear of tears down my cheeks A...

No Farewell Words
Winter grass speckled green with spring’s flirtation to the blue sky with rolling waves of white, heaven’s ocean the cool rush of air escaping the trees to ring bells wind chimes playing song, harps from angels I sit upon the damp earth and wonder about the tears that wet the ground beneath me, so...
