Literary Orphans

Two Poems
by Mariah Wilson

Dreamspace_Reloaded_41_by_Denis_Olivier

You’re Not Here

You are

Sleepy memories

Fuzzy

Like 5 AM fog

Rolling

Off calm waters

Of the soul

 

Absent you

I lick your flavour

From my lips.

Warmth envelops me

Until I wake

Empty

We Walk Alone

we struggle

————————–to connect

we wait

for a look

————————– to make us quiver

for a smile

————————–to quicken the heart

for a touch

————————– to start a fire

 

door slam

————————–Soulful cries

fall on deaf ears

 

tears shed

fires dwindle

————————–the cold reminds

 

we walk alone

————————–in this journey

we live solitary

————————–in our heads

we are all alone

————————–in the end
