i'm wanting for you to be asleep, lost in dreams
i'm wanting for you to be asleep
i'm wanting for you

tracing letters on his sleeping back

mmm, he said, i love you, too.
i had traced 'illusion'

The Beginning
come here, his voice said and his eyes pleaded...
hand warm on my arm feverishly warm
"i think i need to love you"

walking out the front door leaving the lights and pulsing beats leaving him
I kissed the side of his neck

and he tasted like sugar.

I remember this night because I was so very drunk,
lying under a tree on a downtown sidewalk,
thinking that this boy, inside,
was like cotton candy,

The End
A thunderstorm...
we blew out the candles--released the flickering shadows in favor of lightning.
Whispers in the dark...
me into his neck about the beauty of autumn leaves trapped in a chain link fence and him--of rain caught in the mesh of a window screen--into my hair.
Silence...
his fingers across my eyelids and my lips to his because neither of us had the words for goodbye.

How did the parting go?
Keys in hand, I looked back at him,
curled into the shadow that had overtaken my warmth,
then pulled the door closed behind me quietly so quietly,
leaving my shadow and a small note behind.

inhale

and the sky tonight is black,
the air cool and still somehow heavy.
the moon is just peeking from behind a building
but the stars are hiding, completely, from the world.
i'm wishing on the lot of them (because i know
they're there) even if i never saw a 'first'.
you're precious to me, most lovely
creature. keep my heart warm,
please, and feel free to
make a home of it.
i love you. truly.
in my own way.
