You are scared
Of being my inspiration
Of being just words and getting lost
in my solitary mental foreplay

How do I explain
that sometimes words are all I have?…

Ask

I ask myself,
When will I be able to hold your hand
In public and say we are intertwined?
Is a vocal declaration

Shut me up
Stop me from rambling
Just kiss me

My Love

By night and day, the lady would sit and weave, my love
till Lancelot sang his ‘tirra lirra’ and she would leave, my love.

Now you say it was so …

Can love no other

Perhaps You know that too

Keeps you at peace…

in blue flashes
and giant drums
I fear

Road Trip

[Guest Poet: The Girl]

beside me
in the dark
wakes up only once
to say she loves me
her face so lovely

You

On an empty canvas colored blue,
