poems by Lynn Ann Johnson

Hospital Paper

Ton of bricks
We've been hit
Why'd you stay?
When everyone else leaves
Falling in broken pieces
Delusional meds
Where you've been
I've been looking for you my whole life
I need you
Like oxygen
Chase me like the wind
Why'd you leave
I could lay here forever
A trillion promises on my lips
Kiss me

faucet leaking
repairs needed
unanswered desires
in too deep
she doesn't like that
not enough passion
for this wild heart
dancing shadows
pleasing these tender spots
fingers speeding
toes curling
on the tip
of my tongue
sealing your drip
