sleeplessness



sleeplessness
is sometimes
insomnia.

scope
is certainly
a bitch
when totem
is set to be
universal:
a matter
of interpretation
vulnerable
to go awry
based on
nuanced context.

you are
my only ...


blindness
of a sort
priced
too high
only
in retrospect.
tears are its currency;
fleeting
ghostly emblems
even after
the have faded.

whisper is more
permanent than scar.

darling ...

'whisper is more permanent than scar' - words to live by., some things heal different from others. Sometimes, it's just impossible to have taken the better path of nothing said.

thanks for the poem, Noxalio.

Peter, wasn't it Twain who said 'when you have to kill a man, it costs nothing to be polite' ... hmmm ... yes, words to live by ...

I would charge extra for polite. Just because I could.
