goodbye good bye
10:54 pm / 26.08.03

blue turns black when you're in the room
and promises broken
leave me grasping for
more broken silences with you
I think of you
laying in bed with me
listening to
unspoken prayers
and dreams
drown in blue-black waters.

nights filled with mystery
and hissing wind,
we drive around with
the convertable top...
tears sting blue cold cheeks
and coffee burns pink throats
we discuss

I cry alone in my bed
when we say goodbye,
then tonight
I tugged at my white shirt
until it gave me
fourty little strips
I now use the clinging scent of you
to cover my wounds.
I kiss the picture of your face.
I'm the calf.
but I'm also a woman.

last _ next
