A failed attempt

To reach you with my mind

Caused my words to lash out

And you still couldn’t understand me

My hands being the last resort

Of communication


Ohio sunset to me

Bring me the sun

On its knees

It’s scarlet and golden hues

Screaming for one last chance

Before melting into night

Elephant in the room

It wasn’t quite clear

when she spelled love

With a u

but she said it

her good bye

seemed lost as she turned away

but I heard it

her kiss left me wanting

but I felt the weight of her lips

and not the corner of her


she didn’t turn as she

walked away

hurt trailing  off her

like the smell

from an elephant trapped

in a room too long

the circus has  finally left town

and all I could do was wave
