too many candles burning discontent
around the bed,
while i become these distressed phone calls
and voice mails
addressed to you,
which you ignore so eloquently
poignant,like all the decisions you
and the words i never should have said
killing themselves in this silence
another cigarette and another drink
i can't see how i could have thought
we were reinventing the cliches
the pieces of a wine glass
shattered lifeless on the floor.
but honestly- - - - - -
i can't say i
don't have my doubts,
when it's 6 a.m. and i'm back on the phone,
counting on my fingers how many days it's been
since i last saw you
and when you finally say "hello,"
(like you mean it)
i step back
into all the candles i left burning
"i think you caught my heart on fire."
-for the boy. yet again. of course.
