It’s Quiet All Over The World

Deafening,

Isn’t it?

The silence

Of people.

And yet,

There is

So

Much

Noise.

Love and Whiskey

As you stole a glance across the room,

As you locked your eyes on mine,

As words fell from your drunken lips,

As you unraveled my heart one string at a time,

As you stacked each brick upon my chest,

As you embezzled the air from my lungs,

As you paved your path to love’s grand illusion

With pebbles you had gathered off mine,

Did you know, as you left, you’d destroy me?

Did you care? Did you wonder at all?

Did my heart even cross your mind?

Or was I just your daydream,

Merely captured in whiskey

And savored …

One drink at a time.

Starlit Rendezvous

I dreamt you met me under the starlit moon,

A stranger of the night.

The vast stillness of the early hours

Echoed like madness in my mind.

I dreamt you met me under the starlit moon,

A wanderer of my soul,

And kissed away each fleeting thought

Which, on my heart, had taken toll.

I dreamt you met me under the starlit moon,

And held the warmth of your hand in mine.

Calming, for once, the demons that whisper,

For one breathless moment in time.

I dreamt you met me under the starlit moon

And traced your fingers along my skin.

As I weakly attempted to guard my own heart,

While I surrendered my flesh to your sin.

I dreamt you met me under the starlit moon,

And you sang your lullaby so sweetly

That even an angel would cave to your lure

And relinquish her halo completely.
