Just Lay There

Just lay there

And let

Feel 

Around

Inside you. 

You can

Keep your clothes on

And just look

At me,

Stare with wide open eyes

And dilated pupils

Open to receive

The light shining

From our touch

And tangled lives.

Let me

Feel

Your lips

Quivering and trembling

From across theroom,

Across the bed,

Against my neck.

Let me feel

You

Blossoming

Into a new spring

And light

Of loving.

Always and Forever

All

My life,

I’ve told myself

That

Love is permanent-

Possibly capable

Of change,

But unending,

Always

Flowing,

Indestructible.

Love was

Always

The one constant

In my life

That could

Survive

The realities of existence,

The end

Of relationships

And marriages,

The separation

Of bodies.

Like a sunrise

Always

Promised a sunset,

Regardless of what happened

In the hours between,

Love

Had promised

It would always

Be there

For me.

The Pisces dreamer in me believed each breathless whisper, each soft kiss, every touch of bodies in the dark or in the sun, each promise of “always” and “forever”, all the “for better or worse” commitments.

It didn’t matter

How many times

It proved to be untrue,

Because

I believed

In my soft heart

That

I would find it

One day,

Finally

Experiencing the fulfillment

Of all those promises

Made with tangled limbs

And sweaty passion.

The death

Of an ideal,

Is one of the cruelest

Lessons

Of a sensitive soul.

Just breathe

Just breathe-

Inhale,

Exhale,

Move oxygen

From the lungs,

Into the bloodstream,

Fueling the muscles

And brain.

Breathe,

Relax,

Rest,

Perhaps sleep,

If you’re lucky.

Just breathe

And forget them,

Even if

Only for a moment-

Forget them

And breathe.

They will still be there

Tomorrow,

So

Forget

About them

For tonight,

And listen

To the sound of air rushing into your lungs and slowly exiting between your lips and into the darkness you wish to leave behind.

Just

Breathe.

I’ve stopped trying

I’ve stopped trying

To stop

Trying

And wanting

Things

To be different.

Things aren’t

Different

And I’ve accepted that,

Since I can’t

Change

Anything

But how I deal

With the reality

Of us.

Still there in a memory

When I close my eyes

I still see her

There,

Naked,

Wrapped in a sheet,

Hair across her

Sweaty face,

Smiling

In her sleep.

The glow of her

Skin,

Still

Moist,

In the dark,

Light coming in

Between hastily closed

Curtains,

Spilling

Across the room,

To the bed

And her naked body.

If I squeeze

The memories further,

I can even smell

Her/ us,

And remember

The taste

Of her

On my lips and tongue.

I can feel

The bumps on her skin

As the chill

And tickle

Of my touch

In the dark,

Brings her skin to life-

Even if only

In my mind,

My heart,

And tattered memory.

Good bye

Of all the words

You could’ve said,

The most painful

Were

“Good bye.”

Four letter word

Fear

Is another

Four letter word

Beginning with F.

Just like

The other,

It can

Leave you

Shaking

In a mass

Of tangled limbs

And sweaty

Breathlessness.
