Dreamt

If only I knew
To look for you
In my dreamt despair
I might not have felt
So confused

Drama

Drama is as drama does
And I wonder
When the drama comes
Did it follow in my wake
Stalking me as prey
Or was it sought
To fill the dull roar
Of echoing quietude

Shadows

Words are words
Shadows of thought and feeling
Yet they tug at us like gravity
When from our lover’s lips

Uncertainty

I don’t know
How I feel yet
But I want to find out soon
Because the uncertainty
Is driving me nuts

Bury

Don’t bury
What’s hardly been born
Under the past

Ghosts

Where there are no ghosts
There is no fear of the past
But fear of making ghosts
Can call them to the future

Possibilities

Nervous anticipation
Of approaching possibilities swirling
Gives me butterflies
Because at this distance
I can’t tell if it’s a gentle breeze of options
Like leaves dancing on the wind
Or a hurricane of inevitability
With flying steel
