Memorial Day 2014

polished black granite
mirrors blue sky
and one old man
chatting with
brave friends lost
waiting for their reunion
echoes of yesterday

My heart missed a beat

First time we met
My heart missed a beat.
I am still looking for it
in the lost&found section
of this deserted station,
ice-cold as this steel
holding me still

Tomorrow, looking back….

Maybe #tomorrow
when memories fade
we’ll long to return
to yesterday….
Maybe the sun was
shining that day
and maybe there was
no rain.

(A BLANKET)

a blanket
of memories
(my brother’s

over my head
as he dangled
me upside-down)

suffocates more
with its woven
fabric of alone

Always

When the wind is blowing, your scent is what I inhale with my next breath.
It’s purity is no longer found, because you refuse to be forgotten.

OLD ROSE

Withered Rose
Old n dry
Petals rest
At your feet
Scent lost
Waiting to die
Clutching
Memories of
Summers
Past by
Tear wells
In your eye…

Mind Field

Painful memories
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
