365 Days of Poetry: Day Three-Hundred and Five

stuck, but.
no tears yet.
that’s one triumph.

coat the bars.
in liquid nitrogen.
and pray for release.

physics, chemistry, biology.
do you remember?
they all intertwine.

proximity is the key.
wasting away is a dull calling.
I need to give up.

it is broken but not.
I still see you.
unbidden.

365 Days of Poetry: Day Two-Hundred and Sixty-Seven

I remember.
waking up next to you.
and thinking.
this is where I am supposed to be.
forever and ever.
amen.

but.
it is not to be.
for I am too broken.
and barely alive.
and you are the same.
boundaries thin.
boundaries thick.
it does not match.

alone is better.
influence too much of a strain.
on a soul already burdened.
by consequences.

the world and the words.
do not stop turning.
but joy cannot be given.
it must be won.
