thinking

By karmicintent

she often went there


                                  to think


           to think about stuff


the things that fluff


up in her head


                                 you know


it’s never truly quiet she thinks


even when the moon overhead


                                                                   floats silently across


moss covered nights


painting haunting finger


                                               prints


on crying secret minds


 


he never really understood


                                             anything about


about her or him or them


damn him


                       she thought


those seamless evenings


where smoke curled and twisted


like babies’ sighs


                    over their heads


I know


              he said


she smiled instead


she didn’t understand


either


                                          well


she knows for sure


he will never lead her


 


we wonder


                 we judge


she thinks


never knowing who


                                                       or what or where


do questions go        and         come


we answer some


as mornings whisper


                  under tunnelled sheets


pungent with candle smoke


it chokes


                       she thinks


in stuttered exclamations


leaning fears


                        that even love


huh                   love


                      will never cure
