There’s smoke in your eyes
The way they shadow away the shame
There’s smoke in your eyes
Can I fan the coal to flame?

The Smoke That Curls

The smoke that curls
Like an afterthought
Waiting for a spark
To bring flame
For naught

The wax that begs
To glow anew
Sits in the dark
And silence
Unviewed

Like the times I said
I love you
Only to be met with
A violent gaze of ashen residue
Left alone to ponder the meaning
Trying to misconstrue the discontinue
Pleading silently that it wasn’t a preview
Of things to come
The stare of the statue answered
So into the shadows
I withdrew
