Her tears always fall at sunset,
Evening dew drops forming against
Rolling down sullen cheek bones
As the horizon fades to black like
Hearts who’ve been in the furnaces of passion
For far too long.
Replacing diamond desires with
Love has no home here,
Only a temporary space for eternal gifts
Waiting to be buried under times soil.
I’m reminding myself of her,
Moonlight and bare legs,
Collarbone and lips,
The cool mist from a summer shower; but,
Now, winter storms whip away
While the icicles of loneliness
Begin to form where you once flowed.
Our streams reduced to abandoned creeks,
Forgotten behind the homes of strangers,
Unfamiliar feelings festering
As we separate the flesh from spirit,
Saying farewell as one fades and the other
Falls, both returning to the veil of darkness,
The resting place for our souls
Before they first found sunlight; illuminating
From fragmented pieces of my heart
These shattered stories still proving useful.
Now, the rays seek to brighten
While the night approaches,
And, we only lay
When the moon meets cloud;
And sister stars can see their reflection,
Our love shall be forgotten in the horizon
As tears fall into the sleeping sun.
