Delaying The Questions

Abandoned buildings.
Lonely forgotten places.
They make coffee with my emotions. Mixed, unsettled, unsettling.
Reminding me of my mortality – and loneliness
Like a shadow that hides in sunlight but never quite leaves us.
Reaching out, hoping for an embrace.
But I escape to the safety of modern infrastructure, the sights drowning my thoughts till they settle.

Yearning in Vain

Sometimes I dance in a graveyard
while the moon reclines among the nitid throng above,
Singing,
“I want to be loved”
“I will be loved”
“I want to be loved”…
