Circle

The clock strikes 12
and the shoe
is no longer missing.
Somehow
it winds up
in the right hands
and all are looking
for the sole
that fits.
It is a risk she takes.
After all, time
if well lived
is worth it.
The clock strikes 12
and the shoe
is found.

Open Wound

To him who gives a little too much
his heart has turned into an open wound:
If his sole intent is to give as such
what of receiving has my soul assumed?

Night On The Hills

You asked me how much I love you.
I looked at the nightsky and said,
"Outnumbering the passing stars."

You asked me how much I care.
I glanced at the clouded moon and said,
"If you knew, I'd outshine moonlight."

You asked me how much I missed you.
I looked at your bright eyes and said,
"Yearning against the night, until sunlight."
