i was waiting for
your fever
to break

we have backslid
into a time of silence
when the empty spaces between us
were filled by so much more than the distance it takes to get from here to there

November 10th, 2010

what a difference three days makes

a crashing down a pulling apart of dreams
plans unravel
spin out

you come home to an empty house and it makes you want to run screaming out the door
take me to a place where people are
get me out of my own sadness
make me part of the world

you were so close to love
and now love is so far away

November 7th, 2010

this is happening: a quickening, a pulsing, a change

we are not ready / we have been ready for weeks
change is coming and we are busy
packing / unpacking
talking about nothing but this coming event / talking about anything but this coming event
you want this and you don't want this
i want this and i am afraid

anticipation is both dread and delight
say it: you have been careful for what you wished for and it's suddenly here.
