The Unspoken Resolution

An internal shouting match; / But I can’t understand the noise within. / And the external result between us / Is a long cold silence.

Inner Voices

Haunting resounds.


The ego of rationality / Warns me to beware the ides of non-sensicals / Marching a number of imaginary radical illogicals.

If I should ever write a villanelle, / Then may I plant a seed of thought to grow / From the root of my contemplative well.

How Can I Know?

How can I presently / See a future together so clearly / Through the unforeseen doubts in my mind?


My broken heart beats / Emotionally naked / Now that you are gone.

You have the same present for me, / And require both of us to open it.
