there are so many words

Posted by the prisoner's wife On 8:39 AM
love poem # 22

there are some
poems made just
for you       wrapped in fresh
banana leaves tasting of sugar

at midnight my tongue
wanders the earth        searching
for your fingers and mouth
and i come        up empty

time is not on our side
it strangles words        catching
in my throat        causalities
of the space between us

i love
         you hard
brave and beautiful you
are an indian summer       burning
up my thighs

i haven't written this much since i finished my thesis last year. my muse has returned in the form of memories of my beloved. i would much rather see him than write poems, but this is the only way to touch him right now. i hope he feels me.

be blessed
