Observation of Rushing

Love exists

I’ve seen it

but not felt it

If you take your time

and wait

it will reveal itself

precisely when it is meant to

not a second before

And do not confuse hope

with love

Hope should never fade

the wrong love does

So take your time

because life is long

Love Ends in Cliché


hung in the air

curled around

a liberated

weed-smoked mist

Twenty-two hours later

the thick haze


and with it

all inhibitions

The love

was gone

and so was I


it’s not you

it’s me
