Petits II

No other reason

then from the goodness of your heart

you act without needing to

and that is all that matters.

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

I hate to love you:
I am always yours,
I nor you are ever mine,
but as yours, as yours…as your only own…
I yearn…
for ours.

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

my lips are bruised

from too many bitten back words

the tears only make them burn.

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

you say you shouldn’t say

but you say it anyways

what height do you achieve

in bringing down what you held so high

trodding on what you notice

yet don’t.
