Honestly

The words have disappeared inside of me
swallowed
by a surge of world
in a puff of white.
Scattered petals
twirl        twirl
in the gentle, dancing wind

honestly

honestly, it echoes          with the rustling leaves
just let me be
be

If

If God takes me away this year
I will remember the smiles
and the laughter

the seasons with the falling leaves
and your lips on mine
like sweet golden honey

I will think about the stars in your eyes
about the deepness in your voice
words you whispered as you held me tight

hold on to the glimmer of you
you
as I sink
until the day we meet again.

Push

A stroll by the sidewalk
in the cold
afternoon sun

A pinch in my sides
in my feet
it hurts.

Involuntary muscle contraction
that’s what it feels like to be
with you

A painful squeeze in my chest
and my heart freezes
hot ice

If this was meant for me
why
does it hurt so much?

 

Paper plane

It was always
hard to pin you down

Your footsteps
like a needle in a haystack.

With your arms
outstretched to the sky,

my world inevitably, fell
into yours

with the force of gravity, with a blink
of seasons.

Who

Like the night swallows the day,
your light corrodes my heart.

It withers like the pages of an ancient novel,

your touch scattering
a field of dandelions in the chilly black.

Like snow

White cotton falls from the sky

I chase after them with pale fingers

Like tall grass dancing in the wind.

 

They rest on my hand like the tears of summer,

And like you,

 

Disappear with the gentleness of a passing breeze

Of dried red autum leaves

leaving no trace but that on my heart.
