Day

Between the day and night

Like day and night
We were bound back to back
Lashed by the laws of love
Understood only by the moon
And the sun.

The weight of love

How much does love weigh?
Enough to keep a light heart from floating away?
Nourished by absence,
It grew heavier
Day by day
And although neither promised
A single tone carried enough
The final moment said enough assurances.

Day and night on the beach

IMGP9958A tide pool on Myrtle Beach, South Carolina throws off a reflection that’s unsure if it’s day or night.

Three days

For three days we waited
In a place with no wind
We sat in the eye of the storm
And only found out where
The thunder crashed into our dreams
Day and night
Had long melded together
And the distance had creeped into our blood
Something dark on the horizon
Whose sting is easy to forget
When your lover lays with you
But impossible to forget
In an abandoned bed.
