Listen

to the snap of wood

let me touch you

let-me-sing

silky slow soft lullabyes

in the circling of these

my fingertips above your eyes

one firm hand upon your chest

feeling for the Rise and Fall

of Rome within your pulsing cleft

just beneath your rib, a bird

fluttering

a starling scream

of "let me out"

I can't get out

I weep to know that very thing.
I wring a cloth

and place it sweet

across your throbbing eyes

and dream:

one day I'll fly away with you...

until then I will rock and grieve

twirling tiny fingerlings

in your hair as breathlessly


I swallow my despair.

I swallow my despair.

And my throat has closed so I can't swallow... ((((HUGS))))

I hope it's not obnoxious of me to say you grieve beautifully... for you do.  When you are cut and bleeding, your words are strongest.  This is the elegant proof of precious memory, and the precious soul it resides within.  Thank you for sharing.

Um.

smile

I wrote this immediately after telling him goodnight.

I mourn his absence before the door is even shut.

I feel all blushy now.

Sheesh.
