nothing else matters

I’ve looked at life

from both sides now

been tangled up in blue

and still,

my dear,

some-how

the only truth

I know

is you

ricochet

 

behind white blinds

drawn tight

angry words ricochet

some hit

some graze

out of view

of prying eyes

softly silent

daffodils

silently trumpet

the new moon

that crept in

softly and unseen as a

cat on padded feet

Yum (Magnetic Poetry)

YUM

drooling

lusting

languidly I lick

fingers smeared in

smooth luscious chocolate

my tongue lazy with it

morning

 

morning has crept in

on slippered feet

without disturbing the silence

or piercing the darkness

access denied

bright blue soul windows

blinds drawn,

shutters closed

­

 

salt stains your pillows

with secrets

undisclosed
