To Know Love – a poem

the flames in your eyes

cast a shadow o’er the moon

to cage my hunger

 

to cage my hunger

sights are set upon my heart

to bring to light fear

 

to bring to light fear

look into my weakened soul

for me     to know love

 

for me to know love

I’ll worship     your     every     breath

till the last      sun      sets

loves anguish… thirst – an open poem letter

I self-destruct when

your words are lost from my life

dread pervades this void

 

dread pervades this void

as my ego begs for hope

life devastates me

 

life devastates me

when your eyes embrace with mine

own          these thoughts hunger

 

own these thoughts           hunger

and thirst           to demolish walls

for identities
