temporary

 

am i waking up with you
or just chasing empty days on a wire
over concrete trees and vacant stares
of temporary people?

                                                                                                                                  AVP

miles

miles and memories
pass under my wheels
and paper cup coffee
runs stronger than steel.

edge of the road
my signal is weak,
making friends with the silence
called broken and beat.

the silence grows louder
in swift driving rain
missing the exit
doomed hotels just remain.

take out of my pockets
excuses and cracks,
folded dreams left in darkness
weep lonely soundtracks.

covered

turning down his blessings today

in hopes of something better tomorrow…

he unrolled his sleeves of emotions,

unbuttoned his great shirt of expectations,

slipped off his old shoes of excuses,

and crawled into bed where he was

covered and comforted by his lover ..

Regret.
