Yesterday's Poem

Updated: Apr 10, 2019


Things you didn’t know about me—

That lilacs are my favorite flower

that I would break

the law to fill every jar

and vase in my house

that I would break the law

for that kind of love

you would only visit after dark

you were my ghost

you were my phantom

once you showed me

how tender you could be

by staying till early morning

I made coffee and you

still naked in my bed grabbed

your guitar and played

cords I never have known

how to love w/o booze and sex

I thought that was

the only way to love

and I waited before you

left that morning you gave me

a gift your guitar

now I had to learn how to play
