I Have You Only…

When my quaver meets

a premature death in my throat

When I curl up like a Chartreux

I have you only

When my eyes meet

a deep sea of darkness in my nights

When I see no face with warmth

I have you only

 

When my heart hangs

like a beehive on an abandoned mesquite tree

When I sink like an over ripe coffee cherry

I have you only

 

When my soul evaporates

into a fragrant cloud

When I rain like mistified drops

I have you only….
