Rocky Cheeks

26.09.2014

to say goodbye
to throw yourself into the dark waters
down the rocky cliff of fears
living out of waving hands
so that you might open up your heart
let blood pour from your eyes
for your tears

diluted

to run down your neck
in strings of red
out of your veins

lifeless

and onto your arms
strengthened by his touch
weakened by their leaving
livened by some ideas of the future

astray

like the words on a board
now erasable in their promise
to keep in touch
to send an owl back and forth
in pages inked with letters from souls

transparent

so that only the sun can read
just the moon might speak
the sentences that are left
in your mind
written, on your heart
after the saying and nodding is done
gone far away, raising from the ground

atop

coursing through the air
away from who you are
back to who you were
but always adrift from your shore
in which waves break stubbornly

sparkling

with the salt on the rocks and your eyes
reflecting the light of days
now gone to the shadows
and the memory of smiles once shared
stored only in the chest of your ribs

hardened

by everything learned
from those now gone
the ones now migrating back home
back to the love they once knew
away from the love you pledged to know
