At times it seems
Her memory alone
Will drive me down
I stop road side weary
To taste her memory
Seasoned with seasons tears
In cruel echos of her passion
I cannot but do
Ride the recall of her
Spice scented skin
Dark as darkening sky
And love behind her eyes
Brewing slowly to angry liquor
She used to use to use me
Or ride me so hard
I thought I’d break
And again now
Now that she’s gone
I fear I will

What happens when
You love a liar
It is as though
Your heart sunburned badly
Warm beaches you once walked
Now days behind you
So slowly painfully
It boils and peels away
In delicate tiny pieces
Sometimes in sheets so thin
You can see right through them now
Wondering in wonder at how
It ever held anything at all
Gauzy scrim holds back truth
Yet I keep searching
For it somewhere

Memories of treelined times
Are all I have about me now
They all seem to be at twilight
For some reason or other
Glowing gloaming gathering
Around the edges now sepia tones
Of old forgotten songs
That’s how it goes
Here in rainy dark forests
The night always wins
Always oncoming
To take everything in
Up up and away
