Shadows Surround Us From The Candle’s Flickering Light

Shadows surround us from the candle’s flickering light
Once again we are together, another perfect night
In from the open window blows the cool summer air
Clothes we have discarded hang carelessly on a distant chair
Side by side we have fallen asleep only covered by a thin sheet
Our bodies rise and fall together until the new morning we will greet

Perpetual Time Lumbering On

underwear-172118.jpg

Perpetual time lumbering on
Your heart beats with each tick of the clock
A tiny desk lamp illuminating the room
Silent door upon no one knocks
Staring off into forgotten lore
Heaters no match for a winter’s night
Sitting removed in only underwear
Repel this world of justified fright
Questioning all the spoken reasons
Unlit candles calling out my name
Clinking together, so I turn my head
Hush, let us not speak about this shame
