an afternoon under the sun…

I walked through the door once, and into a different land
entirely, sky full of blood, torn in two, it was
a wonder
to feel
the
loss at the center of the vacuum…

thoughts racing, with a heart rendering love, an afterglow
cast,
inside my
chest breathing
fast, and then,
in from the gloom

came you, sure-footed, with a love the size of the moon,
dispelling the shadows in heart and mind,
you did always remind me

of the aliveness
living inside of moments
won

as great clarity did come, and you and I settled in
for an
afternoon
under the sun…

shattering like glass…

walking into misery, watching it unfold, it envelops me
like a cloak, I

drown from within, you were just here, how could
it have been…understanding loses meaning,
as heart breaks into a thousand
pieces

shattering like glass, spreading out through the air,
diamond bits rest in my chest, throat stuck,
tongue thick, with
a mind
blinking
into
a
mist…

traveling back in time, unavailable, so will settle
on memories lying dormant
in mind, and
heart

though
they
do
tell the story of your love, divined

deep as the ocean is wide, you did your best, while
dealing with your pain
like a mime

and, while goodbyes are unnecessary, I would like to tell
you how much I love you,
one last
time…

​​a heart filled with love

heart opening up to new realities,
I see much more today than any other day,
when dismay was more present, the gifts all around,
did sway

in the breeze gently, head down, furious pace,
lost, and wondering where to turn about…

looking up, the sky always tried to offer solace,
and a way to stay

keeping the pain at bay,
and as

clarity dawned, after much work on heart,
and many tears did
pour forth

cleaning and cleansing all the broken parts,
offering a healing in the light, when at its darkest
was the night

a shining, there was, and meet it, I did, where
time stops, and we’re present to all we’ve done,
and give thanks to

a heart filled with love, that always was…

I love you…

heart broken into a million pieces,
agony inside, the time in-between
now and then, set aside

for a moment, like an eternity, dreaming
of other scenes, can’t possibly be reality, pulling
me down into this demise…

watching your hand leave mine, fingers outstretched
into another time, breaking solidity,
besides

the filament continues to flicker, wavering
in the night sky, pulling me towards belief, I
sigh…

remembering your face, holding you in arms, wide,
trying to make another sky

and portal to an alternative world, where the two
remain together, not ever bidding each other
adieu…

instead, remain together they do,
by simply saying

I love you…
