Sprawl

I see you.

Well, not you,

not really, not

the you wherever

you lie sleeping tonight

but the you

you were two

short weekends ago

sprawled carelessly

happily languid

across my bed.

Our bed, now.

It’s your soul

haunting our bedroom

a ghost of you

that brings a ghost

of a smile

back to me.

You have such

gorgeous sprawl.

Another Never

Never keeps
coming true
becoming truth
story unfolding
as the journey
continues, mobius
returning, never
ending solitude
and I always thought
I’d go there with you.
We’d return
together
after merging
our energies, pledging
ourselves to each other
to our people
we’d go home then
feel the grand design
click into place
with our return.
Not this time.
I travel alone, returning
with you
in spirit only,
our ceremonies
years past
haunt my steps
as you
see
through my eyes.

Forget

Sometimes I wish
I could forget, even
knowing the challenge
is gratitude for both
my blessing and its end.
Still. The end hurts
and the two months, today,
of living with
a gift lost
the memory of your touch
haunting my dreams
and I’m so sick
of crying, mourning
living with the images
endless repeating films
behind my eyes
wouldn’t life just
flow easier
if I could just
forget?
