Cool Nights

just a kiss

of silk 
of fire 
i'll die without it

i remember you

I was dreaming of Cape Cod sunsets as a kid standing on the shore when my father asked, can you hear it? A perfect orange into a perfect sea.

Remember summertime ringing in your ears and sand in your hair? A funny glance from a funny boy who came closer and closer.
Remember September's broken heart?

Forget it

I sit alone with my wine
hopes crashing like delicate keepsakes

My heart feels like concrete
a subtle blending of stones
maybe I'll find you to smash it again

Each beat is a battle
but the sun rises up and then it falls down
i feel like doing the same thing

I remember your laughter
in my head like a bomb
your kiss a stab I should



I rode tonight in an August like autumn with gentle wind telling me something. Keep going. Shadows fell an inch at a time building darkness.
