The Expanse

When missing someone
Becomes a word that doesn't exist 
When loving someone 
Becomes a feeling you can't explain
You'll find me 
On that island 
That has no name

The Missing

Say a prayer
For the lost
The dead
The unreachable
Save a thought 
For those unaware
Those unfeeling 
Those alone
They don't even know
They're missed 


Some bonds are 
A tether that ties 
Two souls together
Their recognition of
The need to be together
Sometimes as lovers
Sometimes as enemies
Sometimes as friends
But to imagine a life
Without them seems

The solstice frightens
And the longest night
Taunts the light to show
Her radiant face 
There are no seasons 
In the soul
And it's night only grows 
Darker and colder 
As stars die one by one

I dare you
Dare you to make me feel something
Pain-numbed nerves 
And a ravaged soul
Leave little for 
Anyone else 
Bring the blood to the surface
Make the lash bite
Make me feel something
If you think you can

There is a girl 
In a darkened room
Surrounded by 
Velvet knots 
Hair tied up 
To expose her 
Collared neck 
She hears my command
From across the sea
And begs to please
Not realizing 
I am the one 
Shackled and tethered

There is something 
In the wake 
Of your destruction
Everyone knows the 
Calm before the storm
But there is one like me
No one before me
And no one after me
That will appreciate the what was
And the what could have beens
With each fractured breath 
She takes

No comfort given
No words said
Just a slammed door
Echoing over and over 
In my ears 
I'm left to drown 
In a room full of tears
Choking on sobs and saltwater
There will be no hero
Because no one knows 
You put me here

Every morning
The pain starts anew
Ripping off the 
Bandage of sleep
To expose the sepsis
That is desire

The Destined

I know you
Not because we've met
But because millions of years ago
Your stardust bumped into mine
And we've held hands ever since
That familiar comfort
That reassuring voice 
It changes 
But it's always the same 
I will always find you

And damp
This confessional booth
I'm here to
Confess my sins
But my confessor is gone
Nothing left for me to do
But wait
In my makeshift coffin
Until my rebirth
