Day 88 – She

I saw her eyes
but she could not speak-
a miracle
wasting time

they welled with things
I couldn’t understand,
maybe now,
but not back then

I needed her to sing,
needed her to validate
my guitar,
needed her to be
what I was missing
in a song

but she was silent,
holding back

and I knew soon
she would be gone


Day 78 – Fascination

is a dangerous game
with no remorse-
the mind is a child
among shiny baubles,

Careful to keep
your eyes
in your lane
and don’t go
in the past

for you will always find
what you seek there,
shiny toys and
shiny ghosts.
