you amaze me

you amaze me, look at me
in the eyes, catch my train
of thought as it comes off
the track in the middle of
nowhere, i am amazed,
speak silence to me and
i understand as a tree
falls in the forest, where
did you come from? there
is a point somewhere deep
in the ocean, a blue whale
sings songs of you, you are
amazing, rising from the
depths, you are of your
own species, at home
anywhere in this universe

untitled 1028

i’m feeling twilight
my arms and legs
feel heavy
yet they are floating
on translucent blue air

i’m feeling midnight
all weight is gone
i am soaring through
the black star speckled sky
searching for you
on your nightly flight

i’m feeling daybreak
measuring my night
in terms of time spent
with you across the universe
in search of sunrise
you’re here next to me
dreaming with a
smile on your face

13 days

13 days to live or die

i chose the former,
the universe…
the latter

i do not know
the ferocity
of the fight,
only that it left
unbelievable
scars

it changed me
in ways i cannot
even begin to explain

for better
for worse
i am still here

for yes
for no
i answer your call
i answer your questions

i feel my longing
in the chasm of the night
until
the opaque gray morning
filters in
revealing your empty
side of the bed

i try not to react
to your endless absence,
dressing quickly
i slip into the
misty morning

i scribble your name
into the dew on my car
continually checking
over my shoulder
hoping you’ll catch me…

untitled #601

if anyone knows my name
when my days are done
i hope it is you,
you’re the one that means
the most to me

when my time comes
let me put my hand in yours
let me put my head on your chest
and let me hear your strong heartbeat
as i take my last breath
and sigh your name one last time
