you set my sky with your stars,
and your moon.
Our bodies below them, in testament of our love.
and most powerless on my knees.
Nothing more than a dream.
I faded into a non-existence.
An existence created for me and you.
Our love blown out, like a candle’s burnt core.
The memory drives toward the center, searching.
The wick is gone that once held the flame.
What was, is no more.
Go to the water’s edge,
I am there.
I walk along the sandy tide
…still see you.
You are in the distance.
Reaching without words.
Your silent cry.
All ripples along the shore.
The moon lights the waves of hurt
and still commands my soul.
