Poem – “Send your Eyes away” – Romance – 10/13/2020

I cannot
Bow near enough
To kiss your frozen lips,
Without welcoming myself
To join you,
For tears have gleamed my years,
In outpouring sunlight
For too long.

As I bury thee
Beneath the sea, of my thorns,
You can find puddles away from our home
To cleanse the soil from your form.

Drinking the nothingness
Of two storms, un-matching.
Wielding frost
To lay upon my heart.
There are words left unsaid,
Broken down into bread,
For I wish to see your eyes awake,
As though this were but a passing malady.

I wish to see you face the sun,
Without facing away.

I wish to see you bathe yourself
In something warmer than grief.
