The Night We Kept

Take me back to

The night we kept

Close to us

Remember us

And now we’re loosed

I want you to be freed

In your own symphony

So you float,

On your own boat

Wherever you sail to go

May then, there be vast waters competing

 

None of that easy sailing stuff

But the tune,

The yearning of that endless night

To guide you home.

sweet nothings

let me put my love
in something unknown
aren’t we living on such sweet nothings?

you took my warmth
and you held it in your grasp
only to crush
any connection we ever had

talk about disparities
talk of sighs
restless murmurings
and sleepless nights
but there’s a tired heart in me now
in you now
in blessed disconnections now

let me put my love
in something unknown
aren’t we living on such sweet nothings?
and it’s hard to know
and it’s hard to see
the choppy existence between
you and me

so nothing but hollow
barbs, drunkenness,
and slurred emotions
thrown around now

let me put my love
in something unknown
aren’t we living on such sweet nothings?

and it’s hard to tell
witness your emotions into air
when all I wanted was closure
for you to accept that I cared

But perhaps all we had were sweet nothings.

let you go.

Please my heart
Let it go
Let these perpetual
Undercurrent of emotions cease

In the ashes of a storm
I whirlwind
Eyeing the demise
That caused our breaking.

What are we living for
What were we loving for
It is a daily question:
Why live a listless life anymore?
Sitting on the edge
Of mind’s mental brink,
Swinging legs
And deadened heart beating,
Lub-thub thrum –
I should have known better
That it was nigh time to walk away.

So I’ll let you go
Let this chest of mine
Stop it’s steady sink

And not consider you (again)
As I tended to do
Quite recklessly;
Regularly.

We’ll do routine motions
Maybe try not to think much of the
Other and the notion
That we tried so hard
Only to fail
As we are better together,
Separately.
