lost in the white

where am i, who am i
why am i here
i'm lost in the white
the deep silence of fear

i find i inhabit
a world without meaning
the dark city beckons
a love song, she's keening

come to me, assuage me
let me swift surround
who needs the world
when the dark has been found

times ten

you speak of paraprosdokians and words
times ten
which make them yours for ever
unforgettable you are
a mystery for my solving
and i
whose name you call
times ten
breathe soft and dream
a soon unfolding future
of together
