Lavender And Sage

A new year is right around the corner
I can’t relate to the hype or drama,
the glitz or glamour; promises made,

only to be broken a few days later

the only promise I hold onto is that the
sun will rise in the east, set in the west
and the tide will shift according to the

pull of the moon

Jenx was a soulmate, a confidant,
a coconspirator in our grand plan
to uncover the secrets of the heart

counting each beat

until he slipped away in the dark of
a summer night with love hidden in
his jacket pocket; camouflaged as a

lavender and sage boutonniere
