Lingering love on the wire

Written by: Julian Joseph

Lingering love
Hung on a telephone line
Promises and Moments
Swing like sneakers
Superfluously hanging after the winter

You have been misplaced
Nothing is known
Fate and her heavy fists
have crushed  
Taken unmercifully
Leaving life’s taste bland
Like bathwater
I can’t find a comfortable towel
So I sit in here searching
Drenched in my wrinkly soul 

Longing for a vibration 
To feel our existence
Provide an alternative 
To this emotion
I miss you
