The ghost I’m haunted by Is the one I’ve created Myself, alone, Singlehandedly, Without intension Or foresight, Without the slightest foundation To fright. The ghost I’m haunted by- Lurking but a fraction away From a fingers touch, Like the mind numbing Manipulation Of a menacing muscle Convulsively contracting, That lingers Amid a thousand other ConsciouslyContinue reading “Haunted”

The Value of a Single Word

I am in the air, Above mountainous clouds Of candy floss and cotton balls, Flying between beds That are not mine, Sheets bound to frames And pillows too puffed To be personal. I am the single sleeper- Positioned On the right edge of center, Using just one set Of towels Of the two provided, OpeningContinue reading “The Value of a Single Word”

Compatible Blends

We found each other, For a while As we searched separately For a new life Amid the ashes of a life already lived With bruised edges, Fractured hearts And losses to great to forget. We stopped for each other, All but briefly And, in delighted ignorance, Planned out a future As inseparable As water fromContinue reading “Compatible Blends”

The Wonder that was You

Are we alike- I ask myself? Could we ever be linked Together, Today, any day, As Mother and Son?

Did itContinue reading “The Wonder that was You”

The Christmas Kiss that Wasn’t Mine

How funny And how easy You became my Christmas present- Mon cadeau. My only gift had been a self-boughtContinue reading “The Christmas Kiss that Wasn’t Mine”

Winter’s Child

You gently Wrapped your first chill Around me The other night, As if to remind me It was time For the first blanket Of a season in changing, And I felt Comforted- Like the return Of the faithful familiar- Prompting me To double sheets under duvets, Close windows on sneezes, Return socks to naked feet,Continue reading “Winter’s Child”

The Long Kiss

Longing to kiss you, Long And slow. But first- To tease temptation- I would trace my finger tip Along the line of your lip- To feel What soon I shall taste. I imagine, now Alone in the recess Of my craving mind, How we would move in Closer And I’d feel the heat Radiating fromContinue reading “The Long Kiss”
