dissolved

Dissolved

Into the air

And hovering

In the space

Unoccupied

By other bodies,

Or thoughts.

 

Floating

In the vacancy

Between actions,

Inhabiting the stillness

Between breaths.

 

I want

To vanish

Into

The meditation

Of silence,

If only

For that one

Perfect moment.

I still want

I still want

Her,

As much

As the first time.

 

I still crave

Her

As much

As ever.

 

I still dream

Of her

Beside me-

Awake,

Asleep,

Warm and naked.

 

She is still

My living dream

And waking desire-

Today and tomorrow.

just long enough

Portions

Of past lives

Return

With smiles,

Others with tears.

A warm smile

On a familiar face

And a body

Changed

By the years-

The same eyes,

The same voice,

The same tenderness.

A brief visit

To the past-

Has it really been that long-

Just long enough

To smile

At the good

Memories,

Before remembering

The pain

Of the past.

Pulled back

From the dead

Long enough

To be missed fondly,

Not long enough

For all the blanks

To be filled back in.

 

Just long enough.

trying replaces the doing

I’m trying

To put it all

Together,

Trying

Even harder

To keep it

Together.

At times,

It seems,

The trying

Replaces

The doing.

ink

I’m still

Covered

In ink stains

And hunting

For all the same

Answers.

Still smudging ink

And spilling coffee,

Still creating

A mess.

without the lid

It’s like working

On a puzzle

Without the lid

To the box

For reference-

The picture

Is in my mind,

But all the reference points

Are missing.

I’m digging

Through the pile

Of pieces,

Trying

To find

All the edges

And corner pieces,

In hopes

Of building

A frame

To begin

Filling in the middle.

more than just a little

More than

Just a little

Running

Through my mind

These days,

More than

Just a few

Things

Keeping me

Awake at night

And distracted

During the day.

More than

I can

Count,

Or name,

Or keep

Track of-

And certainly more than

I want.
