tired hands hold tight
to the coffee mug steaming.
heavy rain outside
I didn’t know your heart was broken. Didn’t know it wheezed. Falling at my finger tips, crumble into grey.
Inside I sit, desk piled high with papers, I don’t want to read, don’t want to see, don’t want at all. I stare solemnly, watch slate skies dissolve. Like Newtons cradle the rain falls in rhythm. Soft ball bearings knocking at the door. I welcome the distraction. Watch the rain run, making decisions, changing it’s course. How I wish I could change this. Change what happened. Change us.
White cup waiting. Grey steam gathering. Whirling clouds sting your eyes. Tears falling. Whistle screaming. Piercing the silence of an empty home.
early this morning,
our street basks in silence,
the crow barks hello
You are a dancing breeze on a claustrophobic day. Whispers of hope in the dust. A fleeting relief, a kiss of ice. Just passing through.
I wish I’d made a different choice.
I wish I was your friend.
Eyes meet, heart breaks.
Regret hurts still.
a winding path waits
for your journey to begin
the clouds slowly drift
I thought I saw you driving a Volvo,
My heart broke for a moment as you shifted gears.
