Hearts and Wounds

A deep wound over-healed
When it was left unstitched
Then glued itself back with time
But grew into a strange new lump

A shape ugly, repulsive yet distinct
Forever reminding me of a bad day
Do hearts form similar lumps?
Or are they stronger than our skins?

When You Leave

When you leave
I lie down where you
Had just slept and the
Creases caress my mind
And soothe my aching body

When you leave
I wrap my hands around
My lonely curves dreaming
Of one more whispering night
And your mumbled endearment

As soon as you leave
I start circling the weekends
In my mind's eternal calendar
For a day of love which frees me
From this eternal prison of locked minds
