Sleight of Hand

Should I take a moment to reflect,
beyond moons
and starry eyed conversations,
before fractured light paraded past
invading every dark place
you painted me into,

I may find torment, beckoning
from beneath wet soil,
aching from some lost lament
never heard in clandestine corners
of a dim lit state of mind.

I saw your shadow, lurking
and for a instant, forgot to breathe
when every shaking memory
filled pockets of open distress,
draining thoughts of love

into puddles of regret

fueled by anything
but good intentions.

    Oh my, Lynda.

    Hope you’re well, sweetie.
    Haven’t heard from you in some time.

    Blessings to you in the New Year,
