Haikus for LoversRain sheens on your skinbrightening winters twilightas we skip puddles.Wood smoke curling upenshrouds your head and shouldersportrait in soft greys.Unfold those fresh wingsand take to the air gentlydawns light has brokenA tendril of hairframes the hollows of your facesoft dance of shadows.The moon loves to hidebehind the glint in your eyeswhere you keep secrets.Silk runs down your backyour hair a burnished curtaincatching candle light.
Cry not for mePieces of my heart, scattered on the floorTo be entwined with yours, never moreMy tears, they drown my very soulEach droplet spent, as they do rollacross the moments, that we once knewnow sadness reigns, where love once grewI place a piece within my handand all I see is shifting sandOf what we had, but is no moremere yearning is all for me to storeWithin my trinket box of dreamsLife is always, not as it seemsA blink in time can change it allFrom euphoric to pity's callA sound we do not want to hearIn most it brings the gravest fearOf lovers found and then to partLeaving scattered pieces, of the heartCry not for me, for I once hadWhat others may never seeThis time and place, in loveForever, a treasured memory..
SatedLet me stumble and reelthrough a long winter's revels,those cunning gifts of nightthat dally in my fleshand burn my senseslike heavy porcelain godsablaze and ravishing the air.Let me feast on perfumed skin,arms and legs without a name,grown lush across the cushionsunder a canopy of wanton smoke,and wash my dissolute handsin wine made bittersweetwith no hope of redemption.And I will take my refugein the excess of her lipsand this world gone meltingand wasted like a trollop's kiss,if only to have once pretendedbeauty was my willing slaveand one taste left me sated.
