midnight wish

open palms, wet with
salt of sweat and tears,
reach out outside as
glass pane’s fog clears,

like a yearning new branch
of a house-caged vine
bending, sneaking,
reaching out for sun,

these palms, brined with
my excreted liquids stretch out
to feel the breath of
the cold December wind,

wishing this same
midnight breeze has
kissed your oh,
so, calm sleeping face.

in one brush of air, floating,
against my skin, waiting,
i can be with you,

at least.

For he who has loved me wholly, written while listening to Ed Sheeran’s Autumn Leaves.


Lumiere (Inspired by Tenerife Sea by Ed Sheeran)

Trapped in my darkened state,
I waited for light.
Lumiere. Lumiere.

As blackness enveloped me fully,
I figured I am glowing inside.
Lumiere. Lumiere.

In response to November Notes Writing Challenge by my love Sarah Doughty of Heartstring Eulogies and yours truly.❤



You don’t know me, but
I’ve been waiting all my life
only for your love.

Bones’re screaming,
hopeless heart kept denying,
fear might be winning.

Yet, darling, I know
I was made for loving you.
So stay, don’t go.
