I'll silence my breaking of me without you

Just one last request
       
      I won't ask why...  
   
And Promise not to cry  
   
      Please stay till the morrow  
   
Then unlove me in the morn    
   
      With goodbye

(in)finitude



1.
your wide mind~ bird
from a dead-end (he)art..
skyrockets high..

seeds barren earth-

afloat a sunken bubble
in your lumpy vacuum





2.
that day, he brimmed life...
yet knew..    'feels
around Yama's Rope'


how he nods to last goatish blink-

for Love...

kills me infinite




3.
dusts i rise,  disintegrous..

clubbing back to One
humming Zygote

back to dusts. and, so on..  

death is a myth-

ageless soul

Too late

Such a fierce, bright light
and I, intimidated
tried to play it cool
Your flight came out of the blue
 
I wanted to know you more

tap tap tap

  
Don't mind me
---I was a casket builder  
in a previous life---  
so cool your heels and lie still;  
this will only take a minute

Photographs

 
They send photographs…
She used to say in old days
…For those near the end
So you can remember them

And then she sent hers to me

(iii) goodbye poems.

 

i.


blue eyes
drifting away
in her siren
cries

leaving traces
of scarlet sighs—

aching across
every cobblestone
pavement.





ii.

two spirits
crushed

crumbling in
a granite mortar
pestle,

swirling
together in
one glass
vial

d e a d
in a time
capsule.





iii.

when i heard
about how you
shuffled

i swear i felt
guitar strings

plucking through
those ethereal
clouds

echoing
in thunder
and lightning

Saying goodbye

I lost you today
My heart ripped from my rib cage
Nothing left to say
Dreams crushed and covered in gray
Gazing on your lifeless face

Paper Letters

Austere heartache glides
Across rippled waves of
My empty keep.
It brings a winter
Chill;
Wrapped in breath of
Your exclusive
Swan song.

Ghosted

Lover turned to air
Slowly receding...

silence

Please,
give me bruises,
burns,
slice my empty chest,
Anything to show for the ache

Stop Already

We nearly got engaged
Didn’t  
She married twice
Then wanted to try again
It’s been 40 years
She keeps trying
Enough
Stop already

mass exodus spasm of pleonasm      
was extremely dramatic      
not to mention, redundant

image hung on us

i had to say goodbye to an image    
    
which in mine mind's eye was hung      
     
on "Us"    
     
In order to see that more    
   
Real  You    
     
Again.

Lost Goodbye...

When war kills, people vanish, tears fall,
their bodies become part of drifting souls.
Those left never know how or where to say goodbye.
