A Cut

I thought had healed,
your memory unfaded,
You pick at the scab,
I promise myself
I will not cry.

Our gazes cold,
Our breathing slows,
Your hand is steady.

We've been over this before
I had already forgotten that day,
years ago.
Your questions,
unrelenting,
the cut now raw.
You have your answer.

Falling Snow

I am a shadow.
I speak when spoken to,
listen intently to every word.

At night
when the lights are out,
I weep,
and my tears
like falling snow,
make no sound.

Reflection

ChangeA single drop of water falling steadily on stone.

A Windy Day

I remember being
a little girl in pigtails
wearing my Sunday dress
with arms stretched out
pretending to be caught up in the wind,
and tossed about,
laughing,
continually laughing.

Some days pass

where I feel like the child
whisked up in her father's arms, touching the ceiling.
Other days pass
where there is not much time for thoughts,
and I am the child,
sleepy-eyed,
waiting in line at the bus stop.

First Meeting

Burning your thoughts in a notebook,
you walk past me.
I fade into the crowd.
And though I try to think of something else,
I cannot chase away the thought of you.

I Feel Safer

When you lie beside me,I dream of summer days, lying naked beneath a full moon.August 05, 2004
