Blue

Quiet blue lingers between us-
Disappointed blue; masking all the pain-
A sea of aching blue;
Without words the suffering calls my name….
Latching my breast, suckling joy and light-
Feeding, hungry, so malnourished….
This hated blue: steel, cold, beckoning-
Holds me, and locks me in…
There’s no breath to be found
….Or light-
You’re endless blue is calling me
Your head sinking as your arm comes up
For help
Would that I could save you
And me
From this suffocating blue-
But you’re swimming in your own ocean
And I am but a small speck upon
A distant shore

Silence

Darkness sits upon the heart of one
I love and each day steals more
Until words are replaced with silence,
Action with lethargy,
Joy with nothingness….
Powerlessly my heart sinks knowing
That I’ve been here before-
Nursing wounds I know nothing about
In hopes that I can heal the pain
Of one who chooses to dwell in darkness-
So lost is my love upon this cold plain,
My words carry not even traces of an echo,
Still I call your name; until even my heart
Be silenced by anger and frustration
