summer love, winter sadnessi saw you there in thesummer love, winter sadness8 months ago in Free Verse
summer air, hanging about
things to say, nothing to do
and there in the summer air is
when i had the strong urge to just
find you, and meet you.
though you're within my reach
it often feels as though we're
years apart, days away, though
i saw you there and fell in love
with those gorgeous eyes, the
neutral pose, the steady rhythm
of your beating heart.
summer it came, and the coldness
approached and the changing began
painful as before, more bearable than

longing look left in your eyes though
i was there the entire time.
silently watching, waiting more,
this form was sickness hard to
ignore, how many years are left
to spent, the humanity soon

One Thousand Goodbye'sThere are one thousand ways to say goodbye,One Thousand Goodbye's9 months ago in Free Verse
And once upon a time I knew three -
Goodbye, Adios, 再見 -
When saying goodbye was so easy.

before disappearing into the dark.
I know these names,
their human faces, their stories.
They were once my family.
They’re all lost,
hidden behind fur coats and dirty paws.
Now, I wait for her,
when I am not one of them, not anymore,
where I am
I look for her,
now at winter’s mercy,
with those loving eyes
appearing through the trees.
Waiting is the only thing I can do,
alone on this other side of the mirror,
in this life
that should have been ours,
while clinging to hope
like it’s the only thing I have left.
