Swish

Swish

The swish of a door
Whispers her momentary presence
Another sleepless one's
"Pleasant Night ..."
Is not punctuated by the usual
Click of the lock
And soon we find her
Engaged in conversation
Small Talk

Conversation is alive
And she gestures somewhat grandly
To her chest
While she laughs and she talks
As if to tempt my eyes
That I may be abhorred
And dismissed
As another
Fucking breeding male

Unable to engage her
Eye to eye
I'd like to but I cannot
For if I do I will be lost
I laugh with the madness
Beauty brings
I smile with the sadness
As her voice rings
Through my hollow head
