In My Heart Lies A Flume
I lived inside a hope that was birthed inside a promise
that was meant to last beyond when time had forgotten us
In security I breathe the same breath you used to cherish
while hoping in my arms was where you would perish
Now here we are alas and the whole is back to halves
creating a devastating fork splitting our two paths
Only left to wonder where without me you roam
my feet began to wander to a place we called home
Wander to the home I still envision your standing silhouette
staring below at my cold shadow immersed in the tears that I wept.
Flume- a deep narrow channel or ravine with a stream running through it.
Empty heart, creates a flume, the tears run through, and create a stream.
