letters

I purloined the letters stashed between your luscious books in the shipshape library of my sixteenth spring As I leaf through those lush drizzly lanes, your Lisianthus letters feather my lips, hushing me into my somnolent years A lingering redolence of incense tiptoes close behind me during my brusque truancy to the quaint idyll Sodden,Continue reading “letters”

your hushed and honeyed ways

I scrunched up my eyes to peer through the incandescent shaft Of your hushed and honeyed ways The haunting sweetness struck a cord with my eternally fluent night You crawled in, playing a hose on my sable days Splashing out an Orphic blitheness, there’s no getting away from the fact That I’m endlessly drowning intoContinue reading “your hushed and honeyed ways”

You knewContinue reading “once again…”
