“Little Font”.

I don’t have a photograph.
Only memories.
I’ve done the math, remained alone.
Now there is only me.
Not two of us, or her and he.
On island sand you distanced me.
A great divide, two canyons deep.
In salty eyes so warm and sweet.

I don’t have you here alone.
I’m little font inside your phone.
The walls that keep you on your own.
Are too the ones that cage me home.
Away from you.
Contagious, too.
In black and white.
Put down this fight.
I’m little font.
Just little font.

Now time has passed and nothings changed.
Arms length withstands.
My adoration remains.
The night eternal, a vapors swirl.
Pages away from boy gets girl.
Away from my thoughts
And everything’s grand.
A grains worth of memory
And I’m sunk in your sand.
Betrayed by my longings
And coerced by my sight.
Please gouge out my eyes
If it takes all bloody night.

I don’t have you here alone.
I’m little font inside your phone.
The walls that keep you on your own.
Are too the ones that cage me home.
Away from you.
Contagious, too.
In black and white.
Put down this fight.
I’m little font.
Just little font.

The skeletons daydream
To have and to hold.
For flesh to inhabit
And blood that runs cold.
His heart must endure this
The spikes and the circling.
Now losing his breath
For his blood is now curdling.

One dose of her goodness.
One stroke of the keys.
One heartfelt emotion
Bringing him to his knees.
Surely you miss this.
Surely you’re there.
Surely you care for me.
Under all my despair.

I don’t have you here alone.
I’m little font inside your phone.
The walls that keep you on your own.
Are too the ones that cage me home.
Away from you.
Contagious, too.
In black and white.
Put down this fight.
I’m little font.
Just little font.
