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

daffodils

silently trumpet

the new moon

that crept in

softly and unseen as a

cat on padded feet

morning has crept in

on slippered feet

without disturbing the silence

or piercing the darkness

memories

memories

dipped in moonlight

thoughts of you

melt on the tongue

like chocolate

selective memories

embracing the sweet

ignoring the bitter

Full

I’m so full

-really

I couldn’t have another bite

You’ll have to unhinge my jaw

If you want me to swallow

any more

 of your lies
