You seduced
my blank p a g e s 
w i t h a purple 

Your s c o r e agile
—with bare lines, fragile—
and a smoky


Paper trails
going a m i s s
during o u r morning 

While we kept silent
O, u n s p o k e n mysteries—
fading n o c t u r n e


We felt dazed by 
unscripted p l a y s
that informed f a s t

They begun as poems
untied their l a c e s
c r a z y thoughts


I seduced
your blank pages 
with s c a r l e t

Our minds pondered—
carving fine-line wonders— 
on s k i n s  they


Now our page is orphan,
blank, and d e v o i d
of our ink 

Which we read as p o e m s
but then turned all silent
s a f e in thoughts— 


There is a sea of echoes
all those t i n t e d glasses
s t o r i e s that—still 

                         Yet we had to stay silent
—while we craved e m b r a c e s—
crazy thoughts
                    R  e  d  e  e  m  e  d   ?

  1. Great poem! Love these lines especially:

    “Paper trails
    going amiss
    during our morning

    “…as poems
    untied their laces”

    “Now our page is orphan”


  2. Your crafting and arrangement of the letters in this fascinating expressable manner is damn fantastic. Love the series of thoughts and the carving of the poem.
