The Garden December 24, 2019

It was just like you described

The trees, the grass

The golden glow

of evening light

Falling across the fields.

And i picture you there

Eyes half closed

A song, soft on your lips.

I think of you

Whispering things to her

Things, I said to you

Trying to pique her fancy

With my clever lines

I hope they work for you

Better than they worked for me

I hope she’s better for you

Than you were for me.

 

Treacle December 17, 2018

It’s  the way you

Slow me down

This languorous pace

Unhurried and quiet

Velvet and sweet

Like a long slow dance

Like swimming in treacle

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

His hands November 19, 2018

In a picture

I saw his hands

A sudden stirring

of forgotten intimacy

Muddled memories

Of where they have been

I smile.

 

 

 

The Monsoon November 7, 2018

Its seasonal, this feeling

This desire to let you go

Like the monsoon

It comes with no warning

Wreaking havoc in my heart

Washing away all residue

Bittersweet traces of love

 

 

 

 

 

The portrait of you October 19, 2018

Filed under: Uncategorized — greentea @ 2:44 pm

A young man

crossing the street

Reminded me of you

It was a mannerism

The way he cringed at the heat

Touched the back of his head

Made me look again

And it struck me

I never knew you young

Not even in a photograph

Perhaps its for the best

That you remain old

Never gauche

Never vulnerable

Like the young

 

 

Morning after August 31, 2018

I wake up and i ache

I breathe and i ache

This ball and chain

Tethered to my heart

I ache. I ache.
