An unbalanced book

wrested from a grasp;

fingers never scorched,

it was an icy clasp.

Palm emptied

to hold comfort,

the solace,

the light in the dark.

Before the question,

came the answer,

‘Do you have to ask?’

Love wears

no foolish mask,

truth was told

by a broken heart.

Tears no longer

relieve sadness,

mist clings together,

and they ask why?

wind blows and the fall stops.

coat worn threadbare.

Heartless in darkness,

in reach but never there.

Stir the calm and let it come;

vapours and dreams,

dance on waves,

myriad of tongues.

Walk barefooted and there’s the chance of a splinter.

Flushed face,

over-arching silence

between rush

and calm

that comes only

with the gaze

of a twin flame.

Down into the

deep of a blue

another world,

an underworld,

where echoes spin

and light

shines through.

Sky turning blue to grey,

on the center the gaze.

Arms holding then unfolding,

dream caught before it fell away.

Wise words on a dead page,

leaves the haze of your sweet way.

This too is your day.
