where not a word

was meant to say

what escaped my heart

the day

you took it away.

I have used pools of ink

my wrist weak

trying to speak

with a pen

leaking thoughts from my heart.

Life in verse

shall I excuse fact

admit loving you

is not rehearsed

for it comes with great ease

a natural sacrifice

because I know what I give

shall return as you please.

Do you know how

I hear you whisper

set my heart ablaze

feel you brush against my skin

as I go through life

missing you

but know you are

in my soul

deeper than anyone has ever been.


of you, for you

I like to think they are

vintage sculpted art

I carved out

from the start…
