NIAGARA FALLS

I want
To touch him
But
I can’t.

I want
To feel him
But
I can’t.

I want
To hold him
But
I can’t.

I want
To smell his perfume
But
I can’t.

I want
To kiss him
But
I can’t.

I want
To love with him again
But
I can’t.

The ink is smudged
The paper is wet
Again
Niagara Falls

WHY KNOT

When I need to remember
Why you like me
Around my finger
I tie a why knot.

When I need to remember
Why you want me
Around my finger
I tie a why knot.

When I need to remember
Why you need me
Around my finger
I tie a why knot.

When I need to remember
Why you love me
Around my finger
I tie a why knot.
