the paper filter

residue of my consciousness

Month: June, 2015


I think I’ve forgotten
what it feels like
to feel you.

I can’t remember
the last time I
touched your skin

or had your lips
pressed against mine

or your breath
in my mouth

or your taste
on my tongue.

But how could I forget
someone I haven’t had?


Haiku 31 – Aches

What I really need
Are your fingers down my back
To ease the tension.

Haiku 30 – Pine/Pint

Drain the pint to help
myself forget about you,
But it never works.

Haiku 29 – Enabler

Written words are sly.
When did I turn into an
Enabler of Death?
