Shallow

I know you’re not shallow.
I saw the depths in
your azure eyes, felt
the spiral of energy
flowing through your spine
when our third eyes blinked
melded together and
our root energies entwined
a deep embrace falling
through the center of the earth
through our centers, our heavens
unfolding in mystical spectrum
you’re as deep as infinity falling
through the stars, but
living now, as if all you see
is the physical, here, and now,
living in three pale dimensions
leaving behind the full spectrum
you once held, when you held me,
awaiting your touch
to burst forth again.

Silly

I am, for you, silly
beyond belief
hoping against hope
that you remember
me and miss
the feel of my skin
soft beneath your hand
or the laugh in my eyes
delighting in your words
silly fantasies of
sudden appearances or
a note that will arrive
on a golden cloud
to carry me off
into your dreamland.
Yes, I am a silly girl.
To dream still of you,
who’s given no sign
of remembering me
at all.

Daily Prompt: An Imperfection to Cherish

Daily Prompt

Let It Go

I never can
just let people go
phase out of my life
without saying a word.
I don’t go quietly
not if I care
not if I’ve loved
not if we’ve shared
moments that stick
behind my eyes
seeing you, your
hair mussed and matted
you grinning with
that impish charm
illuminated with
blinking ocean eyes.
So I couldn’t just
let it
let you go
without telling you
how I feel and
what I want
even though it sounds
idiotic
to say such things
long after you’ve
found another life.
