Older Love

Burnt orange sunsets Faint smell of familiarity lingers A hint of electricity airborne Strolling, linked by our fingers — Breathe in and savor her scent She laughs, and my frown lines remain Plenty of grey and freckles Gradually time becomes a binding chain — No matter, life burns inside out Feeling are sharper and sweeter … More Older Love

O Claire

Oh Claire, why can’t I tell you? Revealing my soul, coming clean You catch me looking at you, yes I’m bewildered My words tangle when I say what I mean Oh Claire, of course I stare When you glance in the mirror I see more than your reflection Even my life becomes clearer Oh Claire, … More O Claire

Ch-Ch-Ch-Changes

I don’t have to look for changes, they have been blitzkrieging me for almost two years. Change and I are not friends, we do not like each other. Not all men hate change, but I’m scratching my head trying to think of an example who does not. That’s a generalization of sorts, but I still … More Ch-Ch-Ch-Changes
