Poems

Here are some poems that I have written. Some are from the past:

You are the Best:

You are the best
You are the best of you
You are the best of me.

But darling you
Bring out the worst
Bring out worst in you
Bring out the worst in me.

Erasing Daylight:

I want to talk ourselves
To sleep
Under a cool down comforter
With a purple blanket on top
And fluffy soft satin pillows.

I want to wake up at four o’clock in the morning
Holding each other and making love.

I awakened you when
Your body became aware
Of mine.

I want to fall asleep
In your arms
And dream of
Erasing daybreak.

For Ericka:

Cigarette Suicide

Plath said it best:
“Now I have lost myself I am sick of baggage.”

Sick of baggage indeed.
But I don’t quite feel the need
to slit my wrists
or slip my head into the oven.
No desire to hasten defeat.

I prefer the slower route:
Day by day, molasses may
Pour its tar stained stream
For what seems like eternity.
But, like a dream, though
The moments seem to last
When you awaken with a start
What was once forever
Has quickly past.
