A stroll by the sidewalk
in the cold
A pinch in my sides
in my feet
“Involuntary muscle contraction”
that’s what it feels like to be
A painful squeeze in my chest
and my heart freezes
If this was meant for me
does it hurt so much?
It was always
hard to pin you down
like a needle in a haystack.
With your arms
outstretched to the sky,
my world inevitably, fell
with the force of gravity, with a blink
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.
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.
yet elegant coat her,
nonchalant and magical.
her legs give way and her blood turns cold?
and her boots sink deep into the icy field of white.
I like the way
your almond eyes shine;
when you say babe or hi.
You make me an angel,
your love and admiration
makes me fall deeper for you.
You take a deep breath–
my heart skips a beat,
I’m falling, cartwheeling
to an eternity of you.
I followed you,
your trail of blazing fire
that flared up in the sky,
that plunged the world in red,
You stilled my heart with red fingers,
brushed my ebony hair with a soft whisper,
like the last rays of the setting sun.
