Poem from my first book Carriage Returns


You wait for me
While I sleep
Like Mary’s lamb
Wherever I go
There you are
Like an angelic demon
Possessing my soul
Your ghost remains
No priest can dispel
The lost love
Of an empty soul
Though I live on
It’s always alone
In your shadow
Brightened by your darkness
Calmed by your cold touch
I need you still
