Ashes fell on me
Promises each day of a new beginning
My abused temple
Her absence is ubiquitous.
In her home,
at the park.
in our lives.
Her love is infinite.
We still feel it.
Her strength is unlike anything I can be.
And she’s unafraid to say –
I’m missing you.
I’m missing home.
I’m tired of dreary.
And in that honesty –
I find myself.
Me: But you’re the light of my life!
Nic: maybe you need to find more lanterns.
And I’m losing him, in my needing.
And I’ve lost him in my antiquated metaphors.
and I love him beyond the lanterns.
Gone was Christmas, as was Eve.
Gone was Boxing Day.
Gone was feeling guilty for a State away.
Now a country is between us
And loss is imminent
for what we had before us, I feel so ignorant.
I took for granted all those years of being close to you.
When I had so many chances to be closer and to DO.
To show, to share, to just hang out. To call and just say ‘hi’
but glad I said ‘bye for now’ and never just ‘good bye’.
I’m rhyming and it drives me nuts – I hate that this you know,
but I’d do anything for you, I’ve hit my all time low.
