Exhale Into the Darkness

The excursion to the cabin was to get away

Just one weekend for the two to be alone

To spend the quality time they seldom got

Clothes lay on the floor like breadcrumbs

They start at the door and move inward

Leading to the couch where they lay

Moving hips in a rhythmic motion

Her moans and his grunts fill the empty air

No lights on but the moon dimly shone

They were keeping each other warm

Making love with their bodies and souls

The fire in the hearth has long gone out

Hot breaths condensing in the cold

My Comforter

I’m cold…

Where are you?

The only thing I need now

Are your arms draped around me

Gently and slowly warming me

Fighting back at this cold damp night

No jacket or sweater will do

This is no job for a quilt, blanket, or comforter

And on top of that I’m missing you

You comfort me more than you know

I reach out for your body

Then on my face disappointment is shown

Your absence drives me crazy

And I ponder not being alone

We should be cuddling

Rubbing noses together

Smiling at each other in the dark

Listening to the sounds of the weather

The droplets of rain dance on the window

As the winds softly blows in the leaves

And in here…it’s just you and me

Kiss after kiss and then another

Pulling one another in closer

Still trying our best to get warm

The molecules of our bodies swarm

In the each others direction

We can’t keep still

But why do I still feel this chill?

I open my eyes

And I suddenly realize

That is was only a thought

A second short of a dream

But still too far from reality

You’re not here with me

I’m still here alone

Where are you?

I’m cold…

It Just May Be…Just Maybe

Sometimes I feel like I’m on cloud nine

Unfortunate enough to be shot down

Multiple times over the years

If only life were fair

Then I wouldn’t be here


Not knowing what to do

Asking myself

“How could this happen to you?”

I always put my best foot forward

Must mean everyone’s behind me

And they cannot see

The length of my stride

All they see is the foot left behind

I’m done talking

Done walking

Into situations that have little favor

I need to stop this destructive behavior

Before I’m pushed over the edge

Wedged between a rock and a hard place

Fighting logic with love

What was I thinking of?

There was no way I could win…

Not in this world we live in

Or it just may be

That just maybe

The problem resides…

In me…
