a discovered strand of hope

I can see you
 in my peripheral,
 hands move
 with steady ease
 completing their tasks,
 your body moves
 like a sturdy breeze
 making its way
 from there, to,
 I don’t know where.

And another piece
 of my substance,
 drains away...

I ache to reach out
 tracing the words
 and pictures
 rippling on your skin
 that reveal a story
 of our time,
 I want to memorize
 each line and curve
 in the tips
 of my fingers
 and rub them
 against my temples,
 to relive the journey

But another memory
 is lost and erased
 in the torment...

 my lips fail to move
 with an answer
 to the question,
 the power
 of communication
 is slowly
 being downgraded
 and exchanged 

And yet another day
 of living in silence

now no longer
 in my peripheral,
 I am bereft
 and grieving,
 tossing my head
 in denial
 I rake my nails
 across my face,
 finally, I lay down
 in the valley
 of the dead,
 no longer fearing
 evil, I have become
 emptiness and sorrow
 my veil of sadness
 is catching the tears
 of the neverwas.

Another moment
 existing in the land
 of the living dead...

unraveling my mind
 unhitching my soul,
 you've unmade
 all there is of me
 I am unwinding
 unweaving, un-sewing,
 redeveloped into
 the unbecoming.

Another hour began
 sitting in the canyon
 watching a fall...


Much later,
 in the corner of my eye
 a miracle lit a spark,
 it now smolders
 deep within my core
 and at will
 it is flaming free.

Another strand of hope
 has been cast,
 and it’s coiling inside me...
