Lizard Love

amid starlight she reposes

my life's in her lizard face

that library of dusty looks

records my fall from grace

 

she took the best from me

sucking me dry every day

each wrinkle taunting me

dry pointers to my decay

 

I pray she does not wake

no pity runs in my veins

but violation at the sight

of what sleep she feigns

 

she's a monument to loss

The Loss Of Those Who Haven't Died

They say hope is such a wonderful thing
Keeps us strong against anything
But be careful what you hope for

Holding her sisters hand,

I can see her.

No one else can.

I can hear her laughing at the wind,

Singing and dancing with her twin,

No one else can.

Each time I watch one,

I see her too.

When one walks into the room,

I see her come in too.

No one else can.

I know why I see her.

I know why I hear her.

What I don't know...
