SONGS NEVER WRITTEN (CODENAME “THOSE KIND OF FRIENDS”)

my dear

It’s been a year

since we’ve been anything

other than two friends

and a bottle of beer

Camaraderie

overrated and not even near

of what I long to be

SONGS NEVER WRITTEN (CODENAME “THE AUTUMN SONG”)

leaves swirling around me

Hands intertwined

us, running through apple-bent trees,

hearts aligned

wind carrying over laughter

sweet kisses, taste of cider

Where the mountains grow

to the edges of the sky

Our sweet upstate escape

gold reflected in your eyes

down the highway

__________

fallen leaves at my feet, surrounding me

nothing left but memories

echoes of a ghost

hues become harder to hold

we’ve become faded,

colors are gone

Polaroid in reverse

Winter’s breath a day away

lessons learned

Nothing gold can stay

(Inspired by Robert Frost)
