how I am drawn to you


the town is vacant
abandoned by war
can you feel me
trembling with fear

the moon is afire
and the field is aglow
can you see me
chasing the wind

the bridge is out
and the river is frozen
can you hear me
calling your name

the border is near
attracting me closer
your arms reach out
unbelievably we embrace



december two thousand sixteen

for all the children starving


on the first day of may
all the lonely children
gathered to play a game
each venturing to hide
within the seven wonders

on the first day of may
the sun refused to shine
and the children hidden
behind the shadows
pretended not to cry

on the first day of may
the glorious bell did ring
and all the children
starving for affection
raced to meet their king



may first two thousand thirteen
