Pensive Moments

As if I could erase

you from my thoughts

As if I could, but wouldn’t

As if I could

Pretend your words don’t excite me

that they,

don’t nibble at my ear lobe

and jump into my head

chasing me in wild circles

As if I could

expunge your being

and purge myself

of the longingness

of the pensive moments

of all of your foolhardiness

As if I could hold you

like a candle light

and blow you out in a breath

then feel your darkness

like you’re gone.

  1. WOW! As if the painting do not describe colors of fire lit on a candle;
    As if the painting do not describe that feathers are epidermal growths that form the distinctive outer covering of your poems. You are a great writer, mine! Keep going..keep going!!!
