Delicate

 

On a bit of a writing spree at the moment...


Usually not a good sign...

 

 

 

Delicate


Maybe quiet times,

Holding tight, a lost 

Limb in paradox.


Floating, timid touching

And left over bone

On bone.


All quivers, left

To the elements

And empty.


We talk about

Ourselves in the 

Third person,


And think about

The other men

You've slept with.


Quiet times, dull

Times, in the dankest

Of hearts


To want, to weep

To dream slender

Dreams.


Singing made me 

Weep, and all I knew

Was dust.
