new poem : pledge


the rain moves in strangely, falls on windows,
shards try working their way through the glass

my heart starts to contemplate
the city now called “home”

how I wake each night thinking
of the hours I did not spend with you

all the promises made in love
go with you

they’ll sleep near you, wait for the time
you wake up calling for me

in that wait I grow jealous
those promises – so close to your mouth
