specific stresses

running my fingers through the dirt, i realize that the love i had for you, was never lost.

as the earth sucks the life from my hands, i wish for it to be used to warm your soul.

i've been waiting for the day to be blessed by your radiating warmth.

i love you so much.

empty apologies

she sits upright with a composure that exemplifies comfort and confidence

i struggle to stifle a scream as the space between elongates

i've found safety in security and certainty

we realize that we must honor our dead, with that we do not hesitate.

carnal

we were on edge

we were stressed

we were in the fall out

and we confessed

halfsleep

we open our hands to the inviting calm

i cradle her head in my hand

we share butterfly kisses

her heart is not mine to mend

decompression

a silent soliloquy in front of a clouded mirror

a often-recited rehearsal in the hopes to avoid your disappointment

another cigarette, a cold bed

another apéritif, unending lament
