ghoststrokes
down the back
of a dead arm

twist response
in fever sleep
jars electric
refusal
deep in a
tender socket.

the weight
of impotence
and some
distant potential

measured in tiny
steps, baby
steps.

even this mess
of muscle,
bone & metal,

can''t stop the haunt
of dark eyes
and dark hair
at my bedside.

_____


unsleep
is the hardest
part of
recovery.

unsleep
and the silent
stalking
of helplessness,
uselessness,
in every
dark corner.

they said
it was your
name

i called
when i
came to.

who is he?
he''s not here
they said,

and i knew
i was awake.

_____


i wanted to know
if you knew.

it''s so easy t0
tell the immediate
fears, the forthright
fright of
a situation like facing
some familiar
demon.

too many of those
stories sound
and end the same.

i can''t reach
you;

i can''t reach
for you.

and that''s the only
thing at the front
of my mind.

_____


when you
finally
talk to me,

i''ll be so
tired

it won''t
matter what
you say,

just that
you
said it.

_____


chocolate curls
cavernous dimples
peals and ripples
perfect laughter

green-grass
little boy smell
hot small fingers
pudgy arms

wriggle around
my neck soft
eager baby
kisses nuzzles

jerked awake
empty arms
dead arm
bed of cold sweat

your face on my
eyelids
no escape in
the dark

_____


i miss most
the deep velvet
of your voice

and the sound
of your laugh
in the dark.

the times you''d
believe me

when i''d say
i love you.

that was never
the lie.
