JUST A LITTLE!

I sit there
Stare at you
I tilt my head to one side
As I listen to you
I listen as you speak
When actually
I watch your lips as you speak
I watch as you form every syllable
O pick up every word you say
Store it in my database
For another day.

I press record when you leave
I replay every conversation in my head
If I let you into my head
You’d think I’m one crazy lady
You reside in my head
Yet haven’t started to pay rent
You sit there like you own it
You touch me like you own me
You hold me like you demand to.

They say when you meet that person
You want to shout about it from the mountain tops
Well I could if I would but
You took my vocal cords away
And left me speechless.

So I will keep you to myself a little longer
Hold you to me a little tighter
Caress you a little longer
Kiss you a little deeper
Let you take me to that deep, deep place
Where only you and I reside
That place that we call ours
It’s somewhere between there and here
That place far from reality
That place where we can take the M+E and make it a U+S.

Anyway, forget all I said I was just rambling.

TORN

There we go again
Heart ripped
Torn to shreds
Cords dangling
Tried CPR
Nothing
Tried pumping
Nothing.

Tears flow
No ebb and flow
Another loss
Time lost
Wrists torn
Flesh worn.

Chapter closed
Door shut
Windows closed
Silence
Nothing.

Can you hear that?
No?
Shhh listen carefully
Can you hear it?
That’s the beat of my heart fading.
