Hibiscus

Empty ache full of unrealized expectations….
Dull heart that has beat to no promise
With every encounter she downgrades her love philosophy
He dismisses pain
Easily…
Yet finds solace, and his madness
In it….on occasion

He says, ‘you’re a walking distraction’
And the first time it was romantic
It spoke of fireplaces and blankets
Naked bodies and snow outside
It spoke of an escape
Barefoot nights in the embrace of Senegalese music on Gor’e Island
Hibiscus love

He says, ‘you’re a walking distraction’
No promises, no expectations
A perfunctory kiss stings her cheek
She waves and walks away
The tears run down a well worn path
Where they end she plants a promise

With every encounter she downgrades her love philosophy
