One Awkward Handshake

do wish i could tuck you
into shirt pocket over
my heart to keep
you safe
..

forever,

but worry my fever
would roast those
bones baked,

love’s thread ever
severed.
.

so, for sake of heart’s
well tended
skin
..

and fantasy i’m
floating on clouds
of you deep
within
,

let’s seal the done deal
with one awkward
handshake
..

then bed our sins
once again.

I am a Social Worker by day and an artist/writer by night. I use the written word in an attempt to make sense of the secret worlds and dysfunctional dynamics that lurk beneath the facades of our daily interactions. I am not sure how my writing styles are characterized, nor am I overly concerned about it. I am immensely enthusiastic about music and often connect better with songs than I do people. I also have an intense appreciation for quality wines and whiskies, frequently consuming them in excess. I like things that smell good and struggle to manage the symptoms of a life-long relationship with depression. So, why "grumpygorman"? Spend some time here and find out...
