silence me

silence me with a kiss, a word, a sentence

make it balance out the passion

in ways you never knew you could,

in a love that you never felt you had

or deserved.

did it consume you? perhaps you have

moved on. so easy to do nowadays.

like a stream never stops so could

your eyes, your needs, wants. desire

is inside not outward. did you love her

more? less? not so much as you thought?

is he giving me all I need? do you care?

you know how I obsess over skies

lyrics, poems, movies, art, museums,

my record player, obsolete love affairs,

handwritten post it notes. it’s not me,

it’s just a voice. i gotta cook, clean,

do groceries, work. he asked me what

are you good at and the top three

were correct

while he quizzed me. wow he says

you really do what you love. I would die

any other way. you would find me

like Virginia and he nods his head again

as I write poems and throw them

in coffins, been doing it since I was a kid

so nothing ever changes. just the people,

just the clothing style, the latest shitty song,

but you remain the same. throughout all my

lifetimes. you. remain. the. same.

  1. Wow Chrissy, I love the flow, stream of consciousness, the honesty and irony, glimpses of the romantic and the disappointment, and the humor. I always enjoy your humor. Even when tinged with resignation.

    1. I can make people laugh that’s for sure. Thanks Cate. I love your comments and your way of seeing my poems. It makes me feel that others connect and inspires me more because you always give me such an ego boost when I think I suck. hugs this morning and will visit today. x
