Where Shadows Cannot Reach (House of Heart)
Without you I’ve become narrow.
In your absence I’ve forgotten
how to love and autumn is an ache
beneath my ribs crumbling like
my world the last time I saw you.
I have captured your voice,
reassembled it in my throat
so as not to forget the sound
of glossy wings.
I have dissected our bones
cleansed them of guilt,
christened them forgiveness
that we can believe in.
In sleep I sense your aura orbiting
above me so that I may dream in your light
where shadows cannot reach.
Your Reconciled Man (Blog of the Wolf Boy)
Our two hearts once united have broken
From whence they’d mended, so tenderly and mild,
Sitting now beyond the point of reconciled,
Our two broken hearts like a lost-love’s token.
Seven days since the world last smiled
Without you this heart beats less oft’.
Kicking and screaming inside like a child
Longing for the brush of a skin so soft,
Dreaming of the love which we’d once shared
Remembering the days before the turbulent tears.
Our disagreeable demise from which fractures flared,
An eternal love extinguished, left not but souvenirs.
Yet I’m left with hope that my heart shall phrase a plan
To create a hope anew; as your righteous, reconciled man.
