His face was still and lifeless
Like I've never seen it before
The form resembled my loved one indeed
But I really was quite unsure
I watched a leaf falling so gracefully,
It seemed as weightless as it could be.
It caught a light breeze, gently touched down,
And swiftly began inching across the ground.
Think of me as your face is brushed
By the gentle ocean breeze,
And as it softly sweeps through palms
And rustles all the leaves;
How I long to remove the rage
That’s etched upon his boyish brow
Unclench the fists so tight and tense
And smooth the lips shaped in a scowl
The oddest thing has happened,
And I hardly know what to say,
The man in the moon has come down with the mumps
And he cannot come out today.
Goodbye to all
I shall not think again
I feel the heat between us-
Is it passion? raw desire?
With all the pop and sizzle
Of an orangey-blue wood fire?
I cannot know the breadth of your love
With no defined borders for me to see
My arms can’t expand enough to display
Just how much you truly love me.
