in tiny razor shards
fall to the floor
cutting those
who dare

buried in my mind
some explosive,
I don’t want to find
So I fear each step
for I’m walking blind
and am on terrain
that has been well mined

beneath a blanket
of old snow
waiting …
for the sun
to pull away her covers
embrace her,
make love to her
and release
her beauty within

and if I love, one true sign
is if her wish becomes mine

from you being too long torn
out in the darkness where I find
you haunt the recesses of my mind

devouring the man that you see
leaving behind not more than
a mere shell of a man
