Insistence of Age
You turn my heart upside down, you turn my mind inside out, you twist me in knots; night after night until loneliness is all I've got; hammering these nights with dreaded thoughts.
You threw away the key, no entrance, no admittance, to leave me with hopelessness in my desire; in a room all alone and away from you, high you stand on a pinnacle, a spire.
I write until my heart bleeds out the words, soaking the page with sorrow; can’t go back, don’t look back, no sunrise in sight, not even a tomorrow. The needle enters, striking the vein
Through the Gauze of Time
Wrinkled and weathered
old age, the gauze of time
the mirror reflects
I smile, we are old
you throw back your head and laugh
I kiss your soft lips
