mornings

there are mornings.

when the sun

shines.

and the birds

sing.

and the trees

stand-still.

and the air

softens.

and the heaviness

is less.

Morning

Drizzles give way

to the sways

of trees

That blow away

the mornings

we love

mourning

about.

Resonate

Watching words resonate

As their weight

Inflates

The states

Of others

As covers

Begin to smother.

Outlier

Romain Lours.jpg

You came and asked him why he stood there.

Staring into his eyes

Cold as ice

With words melting

Into ears

That for years

Could only hear

Your voice.

 

As we stood there

,

Like Outliers

,

Without words

Because we were never heard

Because we never had

Any words

To say

Anyway

Because each time

He came with you

,

Like ice

melting

into your eyes

That for years

Could only hear

Your voice.

Innocence

They play

in alleyways

decaying

in the absence of ourselves

Like plays scripted in

dimensions surrounded

by perceptions

of perfection

 

Of everything we wanted to be

Before it came in

and took the the better of us

To dimensions

decaying

in alleyways

surrounded

by perceptions

Of everything we weren’t

Of everything that wasn’t scripted.
