in folly or in fire

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,


Hardly real.


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


Infinitely.


So the wheels spins.


Turning and returning until pain becomes


Hope.


Until the sun rises once more


Before setting in my soul, a fire


Brightest flame.


In folly, I will refrain,


But in that fire,


You will remain.
