Holding on

The way I hold on to you
my old red t-shirt
though you have faded away
to orange,
so what?
you were once red.

Twelve years is a long time
my friend
but you are still my favourite
though the way I cling to you
turns my wife jealous sometimes.

My favourite red t-shirt
now that you are rugged
and old
I keep you in my wardrobe
snuggling once in a while
keeping the old feeling alive.

This one is for my husband who still cling on to his favourite t-shirt.

the deeper I go

For poetsonthepage weekly prompt Deep

In the deep
uncluttered darkness
I search for you
you, my deep dark secret
that I sometimes keep hidden
even from myself
what if the me in me betrays
as our love grows fonder
the more I try to hide
under it's skin
and dangerously
our love rolls
in sheets of blood
death and life.
