Breath [100 words]

I heard a song today that reminded me of you. It was about a man who collected hearts then ran… eventually he’d return for a second chance. When he kissed a girl, he stole her breath away, but he had ice in his veins. He remained unmoved by love and pain. I cried like I haven’t for a long, long time, my sadness reflected back at me from the ruins of my mind. Eventually, the song ended and I could breathe again. All was tranquil grey, clouds retreating to their space. The water may have rippled across a ghostly face.

Flame Of Thought

Past the silhouettes

Of stagnant automatons,

A new realm ignites–

Imagination’s fire reigns

For those who dare to wonder.

Waiting For Tears

I trudged through the gelid air,

The grey clouds fat with rain,

But I did not cry.

Our dog barked at the creek,

Confused at its solid state,

And my eyes stayed dry.

Every day is now the same,

Hours morphing into weeks,

Waiting for my tears.
