Days counting
yet here you torment me still
A hundred thousand days from now and I will perhaps have extinguished  
the desolate flame that takes your place in my dreams
And to the boy who blamed himself for your leaving, I will say,
"She was the change fee to get us where we are going."

I feel a familiar sense of dread in my heart for I know that soon, I will once more be alone. I will have to fan that sadness to feel something. Music will be my only friend, but in silence will I truly grow.
I ask not of love again, or friendship. I look not for it, for by looking did I also lose

You whispered in my ear a theory of everything.
how you thought fate weaved its strings in patterns of pain and pleasure how we set sail through the tides and called it life
You went on and on in a sort of an agreeable-contradictive tag of war with yourself, like a mad scientist and
when finally fatigue overtook you and you stopped,
so did the swindling mantras that hid in your whispering booms
They had torn down pillars where once peace had flourished.
Theories had turned time into a speck and a speck into a galaxy yet here I was, the billionth in a billion, worried that my morning coffee wouldn't remedy your presence keeping me awake all night

First time the wind blinded me with your hair
I felt a fragrance I shan't soon forget rush my breath
my feet never did buckle under you
instead, I beheld such a force
and we sprang true across the night sky
-with you as my giggling guide-
straight to the moon and beyond
where little made sense

I saw red again but this time
you were not there
to bar the darkness that
would set my soul aflare
This time I
clenched my fist like I do and
bit my lip in rue and suddenly
you were indeed
handling me
like a too good dream
your essence O so clean
but my eyes ever too keen
to see red when I realize
you were never even there

There lies a fracture in time

a void of encapsulated memories

in wind and dunes

you lost a smile

somewhere in her eyes

where stars are born and extinguished

where summer chills pass

and blizzards bring beauty
