Close Your Eyes

Poem By Seamus Whittington Crawford III

I close my eyes and there you are.
Embracing me with your smile.

Don’t worry, I love your skin. You know you’ve
Always been beautiful to me.

My hand has been out for years, ready to accept
you as you are – for the stranger you’ve become.

When was the last time you cried?

I’d like to meet that woman, whoever she is.
She's pretty, her smile as fresh as the morning.
I want to gently caress her face, if she’ll let me.

Close your eyes and we might find each other in the dark.

Get To Know You Again

Nice to hear your voice after all these years
You actually sounded like a friend (bad joke)
Don't know why I called, guess it's just because I think of you at Christmas.

The Deal I Thought I Wanted

You: 'I've been thinking. I miss you. Come see me.'
Me: 'Give me an hour to do my hair.'

'Well, that sure was fast.'

Look Some Place Else

Wish the words would
arrive
that would
finally

Tell Her, Mr. Moon

So tell me Mr. Moon:
What’s she doing tonight?

Can you see her as clearly as I can see both of you?

Match Burned Out

The strings attached
Come undone
Whenever I light a match
To see you're gone.

A Night Like This

As morning creeps up from behind
I look back at the fading night once more.
Quiet, serene and secret -just the way I like it.
