People don’t want their lives fixed. Nobody wants their problems solved. Their dramas. Their distractions. Their stories resolved. Their messes cleaned up. Because what would they have left? Just the big scary unknown.

Every form of addiction is bad, no matter whether the narcotic be alcohol, morphine or idealism.

The house was caving in this last week.

Rain, his fingertips used to ease
but not lately.
There seemed anger in his heat.

Seven days
that showed me what it felt like
in one of those slowly enclosing walls
you only see in dreams,
ones you wake from sweating.

And was that the smell
of slow decay?

I stepped out today.

And we began talking about metaphors
mud and my eyes that
to her were soft playdoh.

Light seemed to reach in through the cracks
and the heat this time
breathed.

Remind me next time time stops
to run outside in the rain,

die in the cold
than rot in chains.

I love you-I do-but I am afraid of making that love too important. Because you’re always going to leave me…We can’t deny it. You’re always going to leave.

I want something else. I’m not even sure what to call it anymore except I know it feels roomy and it’s drenched in sunlight and it’s weightless…

Oh little light
keep blinking
rain has been selfish lately
like a child deprived,
I see you through the ceiling
made murky
by thunderous weight,
tap on that tiny window
so I know you’ve stayed,
keep your promise
of mornings
warmer with dewy haze

Was that it? Come back.
Keep stroking my pained back
hum that strange song
as I dream on your lap,

keep washing the window sill
and paint me a face
I see no tears running down
I see cheeks to gray skies raised,

fall madly on my skin
kissed by autumn’s leavings,
I’m not alone in this longing
go ask the maple, she sings

still waiting, still gazing
your scent has left a dance
but I cannot feel my feet
yet I’m pierced by your hiding glance.
