A little closer to the truth
But nowhere near your heart.
Watching and waiting
and thinking in circles,
Twisting along the gentle curve
That should be your body,
Desperately wanting what I cannot touch.
It's just a shape, barely imagined,
I stand, fully present,
This moment drifting and shifting
Distorting what I know to what I think
To, finally, what I forgot.
And I will forget again.
Forget the need, forget the want,
Forget the days and nights
And everything we felt.
I feel your absence like a hole in my hand
Letting sand slip through
With barely a sound
While my fingers clutch desperately
At what they can never hold safe.
I’ll let it fall and drift and fade.
Like you. Like then.
The cycle continues, repeating
So the wheels spins.
Turning and returning until pain becomes
Until the sun rises once more
Before setting in my soul, a fire
In folly, I will refrain,
But in that fire,
You will remain.
