Too young
Too alone
They whispered

Just two lovers sitting in the park.

We’re just two lovers sitting in the park, Waiting for the end of the world. We do not rush- No, instead we linger, In earthy stillness, Just to see if love never truly ends. We watch the grass dance with bumble bees, And the wind play with shadows; All is quiet, until I lean over…


Whatever gets you through the night, babe. Sure, I’ll tell you you’re handsome- ‘I can’t decide if it looks better off or on.’ Yes, I can pretend you’re the only one- ‘The only one for me.’   ‘…Babe?’ Just don’t expect me there In the morning- ‘I told you I was destined to leave.’ It’s…

Ghosts in my tears

There are ghosts in my tears! Then cry your eyes out, love, But don’t expect me to pass you A tissue. Those ghosts are our friends, They’d be yours too if you Stopped sniffing. You only created them, They owe you nothing.


Once we shared paradise, Childlike and wide-eyed, but your heart paled and in a hateful fever of lies – In a storm of sorrow- You left our love out to Die- Dry… I meant dry. It’s not dead Only dormant. I know because I still love you.
