table

looking down through his glass 

he saw where the tears of wine

had left their stains of disappointment 

deep inside the splinters of a broken table.

plan b

old shadows 

that hover over the rocks and stones

in front of him

lead him with the wicked echos of regret

that his life had only become

his plan b.

the boy in the window

carving a broken heart in his breath,

realized the condensation dripping down

was like watching his tears…

die on his lips.

rhythmic

the duel between his heart and mind

became a dance in rhythmic measure

of opening and closing, 

each inflicting strict penalties on him

of reward and punishment

as conditions for love.

unnoticed

feeling unnoticed,

he continued to put himself in the

way of his own beauty.
