A Crease in the Sheets

October 16, 2007

11 Comments

A crease in the sheets Looked just like your feet, But I knew you had left. So I straightened the bed. Half-hoping to find You were lying inside. I imagined you’d say That you’d got off the plane, You’d decided to stay. Or that maybe, you’d say That you’d had to return; Or that someone […]

My stomach burns With the quaking tide, When you play with my toes, When you tickle my pride. Take me away To your far away land, Buried like dust In the prints of your hand, Where your smile doesn’t crack, And fade, Before the hours Draw into days. I lay in the bed Of a […]

Unlike

Unlike a lightless chasm, No deep mystery to fathom. What I may or may not feel Is un-vital. Hardly real. Yet you are. More than the rest. I love you all. Or do my best. In a world I longed to find With all my blue moons left behind On the far side of the […]

In the desert, in October, All my thoughts were sane and sober. When I met you it was over. …You went away, before too long. I left, the day you disappeared, To the mountains, sharp and sheer, Where the air was cold and clear… I thought I’d lost you; thought you’d gone. I recall I […]

The Serpents

We are living for a breath of cold. As we watch the shadows fold Into olive sands … The bays Of salty waters Mark our days; By the ripples, By the tides. We come forth limping, ― Leave in strides. And the heat lays Like a hound. The children know The crooked sounds Of serpents, […]

The Tide

The early morning tide Is low again, Very low, As if a giant sea monster came in the night And gulped up half the harbor. I often wish I could walk out there, But I either don’t have the time, Or the courage. – Written by Anna Williams at Age 10 Barnstable, Massachusetts

Fusion

Starlight, scientists have stated, Is only glows, heat rays created When two small unseen specks collide, Becoming one. They haven’t lied. For you and I can see the truth That stars are made of pure-breathed youth. Two tiny heartbeats, yours and mine, Merge, unite, and make the stars shine. – Written by Anna Williams at […]

Thinking of Me

I hung up the phone, And then I went home, Knowing you were still thinking of me; I lay down for the night, And I turned out the light, But I knew you were thinking of me; So I lit up a candle Took a book from the mantle, And I read of the Antarctic […]

Since I remember you, Since I can see A wind blows within you That blows within me; Since I still know you… I finally found you. A long time ago, you Wore music around you. Caught in a spell; Trapped in time, tied You’ve gone through hell Since the first day we died. Before the […]

Blue Roses

Long before Autumn, Long before June, I sent you blue roses Beneath a white moon. Almost six years ago, Under the sky, I watched the stars And I swallowed a sigh. You spoke of sunshine And laughter and life… I remained red-eyed, Saddened with strife. The wind of your woes was As much as I […]
