week 484 ~ our words emerge and quickly disappear

with one comment

our words emerge and quickly disappear
into the realm of things forgotten now
like love or a shared history while here
we continue to try not knowing how
this will end reaching for what we can’t see
communication some impossible
intersection of our lives now as we
navigate the impossible maze full
of memories long extinguished how far
can we proceed until there is nowhere
left to go ‘til the journey’s too bizarre
to contemplate because there’s no there there
as you slip away as your wandering mind
unties the stretched-thin cords that used to bind

Week 245 ~ it began to rain soon after I left

with 17 comments


it began to rain soon after I left
but I can still see her smile in my mind
radiant in the moment unbereft
despite all that’s been lost granting a kind
of benediction between us and this
day if we don’t ask too much or look back
we can stay balanced pretend we don’t miss
everything we were and embrace the lack
of memory or context to enjoy
our present forgotten but returning
again somehow eternal undestroy
-able in its simplicity a thing
to be cherished for its own fleeting grace
as a token of love time won’t erase
