Cait Oiler Poems
The fire crept across my waking face, Leaving only slight images of you, Feel Jack Frost crawling closer? His touch lingers still on my lips,
How could I hide it from you? Cover it with words, Pretend it was an accident?
I can still recall how it would be, White roses lining the halls, Candles, flickering in-between smiles, Fingers laced with fingers thinking that this moment would last forever,
You smile politely as if to say that we've 'lost touch', I slip my coffee and try to forget the moments we've lost, It's hard to face you, To look into your eyes,
Somehow we've ended up so far away, Distant to what we once were, Contention plagues us now, Can you take me back to that day?
keep telling myself that I'll love you in the morning, But it's a white lie, The color of the walls, Something that means more than it should,
You've smothered me in feelings of the past, Almost every sentence begins with, 'Remember the time…' With each breath, My soul drifts further away,
The moment seemed to repeat itself, I was living in that second and everything felt right, words filled my throat, But as they inched their way to their escape,
Your voice repeats like a record, A pattern, A sound, You breathe and I know what's coming,
Conversations Ii (Over Coffee)
Your gaze seemed colder than the coffee warming my hands, I couldn’t help but fall back into the memories of those forgotten, warm days, The sun felt warm on my back as the cool water splashed our faces, “I wish I was wiser.” You say.
We're so different, You say, There are now lines around your eyes, You pretend to brush them away and laugh,
I'd bleed for you, But I've forgotten the pain, The short pressure,
Too often I find myself stuck in rewind, Reliving past the moments we never but should have shared, I still believe that it should have been me, Rather than some big-eyed teenager.
Daniel Keeps The Elephants
Daniel, Why has the world turned colder now that you’ve left? I use to pretend I crashed into you every day, But the impact never felt right,
We're so different,
There are now lines around your eyes,
You pretend to brush them away and laugh,
I smile and say my heart isn't as fragile,
But it still is.
Time has crept closer than before and now we realize that it's over,
The feelings once felt have dimmed and faded into nothing more than a slip of coffee,
'What if it would have been different? ' You ask,
