rain brings out the missing

be with me

just stop
for a moment
and dwell with me

just listen
for a second
and live with me

just play
and linger
don't lift a finger
to what needs to be done

overcome what you think
has to be

and be with me

just be with me

even when

i'll love you
even when
we don't see
eye to eye

when phone calls end
in pointed words
instead of
on point

when decisions
are made
to placate
rather than please

when the yes
in your heart
is quietened by
the no in your mind

i will be kind
to the end

even when lovers
turn friends

quiet man
sprawled out
across the bed

silent sam
dreaming in
and out of head

watching him
as i write this
boring ode

wanting him
more than he'll
ever know

holding fast
to what he is

and what he thinks
will be

when he wakes again....

the hug

i inhaled you
with that last

hugging you strong
floating in space

walked around
our beings
with my very soul

learning to grow
all over again

where does apart

within the next step

you're not who i need

bleary eyed
staggering home
after an internal plead

you're not who i need

sad eyed
trying to hide the pain
insanity next to me

you're not who i need

i can't lean on
your future
because you've been
scary in the past

i can't think of
your words
without holding something

i can't talk the truth
to you
when you make my soul bleed

you're not who i need
you're not who i need
