vi. fragrance

my grief stays up all night
she desperately wants to sleep
she keeps her eyes closed
trying to remember the fragrance
of roses and other sweet things

v. i need to know

you rise from the soil
in my dreams, the seams
of your sorrows, loosened
letting go, you lean forward
eyes soft, reflecting the sky
i want to ask you why
why you chose to
take your soul
somewhere else, i know
it was written, you penned
your pain and left it behind
but i want to ask you why
now that you are no longer
broken here, if from there
you have gained more clarity
i need to hear or feel
your voice again –
saying something new, not
an echo repeating
in my mind,
i want to ask you
what it’s like outside of our
Time, outside of our World
of Pain, i need to ask if
it rains where you are,
if the winter is just as bitter cold
i need to ask you
have you lost us … and me
or are you somehow
still growing older, over there?
it will take me a while, i hope
before we eventually meet again
i need to know when that day comes
if it is empty or one with you again

iv. gone cold

sadness doesn’t like
to hang around in the air
anymore than she has to,
she dislikes the cold winter
wind as much as we do,
she just wishes she could
make a little warmer
truths gone cold –
they settle into
a dusty golden sunlight
winter, it’s too cold this year
it feels like it has grown old
lost its courage and cheer

iii. cold hands and arms

there’s a sea of stars between
your soul and mine, you left me here
wandering around lost,
believing you had no where else to
go, time was a shadow with cold hands
and arms, the world
held snow on her shoulders
for a little too long
you wrote your songs not to
save your heart, but to make
falling apart a little more gentle
a little less cruel on the heart

ii. lovable sad one,

don’t take too much of the dark with you
leave some for us, so we can still see stars,
to send our prayers and requests to them, i
hope you are reading the letters from my lips –
you were golden, you did well. you did your best.
