You wonder if the lights ever go out
when the eyes of a thousand yellow suns
settle along the horizon

A vacuum flinch or shutter couldn't shallow
the waking of these dreams
or a darling word they bend to touch

Oh how she breaks me with every memory
or foolish word i care to read
the trees and streets that grace her name

A heap of dead poets could not wish away such sentiments
or touch the face of a new day
that forgets one moment of the past

A soft-spoken servant who trembles behind
a host of obligations, those
unsaid requests speak the loudest

by far
my favourite of yours to date. haunting, graceful, eerily beautiful and full of bitter-sweet sadness... 'specially those last three lines… a poem to be proud of, in my humble opinion.

Stacking Poets High
I once was a dead poet...
until I jumped off the stack
