realization

by

Michelle Gould

the bittersweet harmony of us
pools in the recesses of my memory
seeking to touch you
i found myself
unable to comprehend the beauty
i am confined within you
the power i surrender you
for the ease of our being
but i can lay back and dream of you
surreal and distorted
the memory lies beneath the surface
hiding for my protection
though i miss the warmth
of your confidence
the lack of caution
was our end
no way to return
too much learned
a night to remember
the silencing of our love


anonymity

by

Michelle Gould

reaching across the darkness
a face that has no name
who knows me better than I ever could
he sees into the darkness
and gives it all a name
and shows me what it means to know myself
the strength of his creation overwhelming
the power it exerts all much too strong
I can feel him find his way into my heartsong


summer

by

Michelle Gould

you were laughing
I sat back and drifted
into the sound the smell of you
the grass rippled beneath me
tickled my arm as I leaned
across you and into you
the sun smiled around us
as we played with the thought
Letting it dance around us
through us
and I dreamed

I was dreaming
you looked up and sighed
played with my hair as I wondered
letting float the sweet idea of us
we gazed overhead
saw our dreams in the clouds
and I loved


betrayal

by

Michelle Gould

The night is lost in a colorless blur
The touch of your lips still tangible
The scent of your being still in my mind
As I weave the memory through us
And see the clear intentions in your eyes
You said, baby, I'd never leave you
I love you, you know you're the one,
Said, love, let me show you
The meaning of being my lover
And I can't escape
Can't move past the pain
I can't forget the truth
Of being you
And what we'd do
I can't release what always will be me
It will be you


mortality

by

Michelle Gould

We betray ourselves
Drifting through a darkness
A night so dark has never seen
A corpse so bright
The night is not as safe as it may seem
Mist coils through me
A dark blanket of the sleep
I feel no pain but the fear
Your love not strong enough
To hold me up
Soft lost gone
The black creeps through me
Too late for salvation
The end


loss

by

Michelle Gould

Lost in the bleak dark wilderness
Of myriad desires
Endless and relentless
His sole inversion lies
Seeking something abstract and lonely
Too hard to recognize
Scouring the black indiscretion
Of your eyes

I gaze above the smoke
Into the resulting chaos
Of your love

I feel you pressing soft and heavy
Into the depths of her hollow attraction
My definition lacking
I fail to see how you neglect
The consequence of action
You destroy our love in
A stroke of passion


intimacy

by

Michelle Gould

aromatic breezes swell to me in the night
cool to the soft naked touch
drifting in the recesses of memory
they bring to mind the scent of you
the essence of you tangible, so near
as i lose myself in the rhythm
of the memory of your breath
your weight oppresses me softly
controls my heart my breath my mind
and i understand the meaning of
my life without you in it


uncertainty

by

Michelle Gould

uncertainty envelops me
the question without words
he asks in tones
unable to be heard
the feelings we once
wrapped around each other
leave us naked, empty
wishing for another
time and place when
we could be together
through our actions we're
now separate forever
