The Lover’s Almanac 19 June – Lyin’ Without (Cornelius Krieghoff & Eleanor Norcross)

Dear Zazie,  Here is today’s Lover’s Almanac from Mac TagRhett

The Lover’s Almanac

Dear Muse,

time sweepin’ back and forth
across the subconscious

lyin’ without
knowin’ that any moment

you will emerge,
slip into your place beside me

and everything will fall into place;
the moonlight through the window,
the sound of your breathin’,
the smell of your perfume,
the feel of your skin…

lyin’ without;
you sweepin across my subconscious

knowin’ that soon
the shadows will emerge
