I can hear the moon
languish its light into every room.
It rustles the blinds
Shadows are alive in every doorway.
There are echoes here of words never uttered,
Syllables are hanging dead on doorframes.
The first word spoken never imagined
that in the infinite wake of its sound
there would be voids.
I lived in those voids.
I used them like armor.
You laid bare like the pit of a peach
And dug yourself into the voids.
These words now will always seek you
And if you’ll have them you’ll have me too.
I stare at spaces and in them I feel your air,
I pulled eternity into me to fill these spaces.
But I can feel all the universe colliding in my heart tonight.
can mend love
time can mend love
But there is no more
I hardly sleep anymore.
There is a space here
all the stars cannot fill
The sun cannot fill
There is a space next to me that
time will not fill.
When I close my eyes not even my mind can find peace.
When I dream not even my heart can find peace.
In these dreams I am alone and empty, like a shed or a tunnel.
In these dreams I see only the back of your head.
Through your hair I can hear only tears.
In these dreams there is always a tree out of reach
In these dreams I cannot taste a single peach
That hangs on branches bruised and sweet.
I cannot find their pits.
