Phoenix

in love we trust

and love we lost

for reasons hard to fathom

 

was it a smell

a sideway glance

a gentle touch that bound us

 

and was it a word

or the lack of it

that wiped the table clear

 

how deep we went

to form our cave

in which we got caught in comfort

 

how could we get lost

in this cocoon

where words have left us dry

 

we grew little spikes

to penetrate our skins

which left us too close for comfort

 

let’s find a whiff

of that ancient smell

to trigger emotions long gone

 

reach out and stretch

to find yourself

and look for that sideway glance

 

what once was good may be gone for good

but something good may follow

 

w.j.u.h.
