painting

i wore sadness on my eyelashes, rain –
time walks clouds on leashes slowly –
he rose from his seat to greet me,
taking a tissue from his pocket.
dabbing my eyes with a golden sunlight,
kissing sadness from my eyes with
sunlight from his lips to
draw rainbows.

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

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

i. holding snowfall

you left me holding a cold winter in my arms
but i hope no more harm visits you as you
make your way into a new world, somehow –
someday, if in that world snowfall exists, i
hope you hold it close, and feel the warmth
of my heart, because you are loved and missed
