Velvet

I once slipped into the night.

And the night felt so right.

Velvet curtains, shutters bright.

With hidden pleasures from my sight.

.

Velvet sheets, simplicity.

As fingers march towards ecstasy.

Come say my name, sit next to me.

Or better yet… on top of me.

Comma

I came upon a comma, and kicked it to the curb.

No time for apostrophes, let’s find some more verbs.

I once stabbed a question mark, and heard an exclamation.

Watched it bleed three periods, I felt a sense of satisfaction.

Silly

I could shine a light into the night.

But why would I want to see the night?

Even when I close my eyes it’s not right.

The dreams. The night terrors. It’s never right.

I could run a mile but never gain an inch.

Just an inch. Half an inch.

I’ll take what I can get.

Personal

I sat upon the ledge of tomorrow.

And watched yesterday run away.

No wave for parting sorrow.

Just another today.

I look down between my feet.

Deep down inside of me.

Past the sight of you and me.

And all my other fallen dreams.

Midnight

I crept up upon a whisper. And saw the words disappear.

They seemed to run from me. These words inside of me.

I finally caught a word. A word, what a word.

The word was actually ‘word.’ And I got what I deserved.

No endings were found tonight. I kicked the period of a run on in flight.

You might think it’s right. But a single word is never right.
