t's fall out here now.

-----------------------------

a haven it was once                                                             ­                     

now a mourning ground.

------------------------------

For you this year                                                             ­                                           

wildflowers I leave

------------------------------

The sky under which I walk

the memories you left with me

all bear down on me

inside and out.

-----------------------------

I can hear you laughing.

the sound carries

through the cold air.

Serene and sure.

-------------------------------

Leaves crunch under my bare feet.

I can feel them.

They keep me here

Even when all other reason fails

------------------------------

I cannot walk into your tomb.

My feet refuse to move

an inch beyond that pretty wood.

So I stand at our door listening

to that soul trapped inside.

-----------------------------------

A warm voice crooning

some long forgotten song

a myriad of sounds and images

buried behind that door

--------------------------

The sky under which I walk

the memories you left with me

all bear down on me

inside and out.

WAVES

There was a time when

your presence in my mind

was not so all consuming

when the demons remained buried

crashing waves on obsidian walls

just lingering in the shadows

LIGHTS

I feel like I'm losing you too

to all these lights, to people new

to souls brighter than mine;

to memories new.

in my head.
havenx Mar 2021
In here the sun shall not rise

The eternal night breathes

Of grief and rage

In this chaos there is no rest

No sleep no release

These thoughts are not mine

to control or resist

Yet these thoughts are mine

To possess and breathe in.
