poetry by j matthew waters

a million miles yet to go

I’ve been unable to interpret
those bright scarlet colors
dominating my dreams
taking a toll on my stamina
night after night after night

this mistress of mine
appears in and out
of my space time continuum
her heart pumping
inside mine
soft kisses on my temples
promising eternal sleep

there are many more
opportunities beyond the sun
than most men know
and those bright red poppies
resurfacing in my
newfound field of vision
are just the beginning

  1. I love, love, love this — especially how you threw in that sneaky little “myspace” reference.

    The temple kisses are my fave.
