Our lives apart

From that day I never said
her name
I simply stared into space and 
on solitary inquisition
if asked, pronounced it
with deliberation
One syllable after another
in slow unconscious seduction
She might have woven 
each strand of her hair
so I can forever have an inedible constraint
Every thing meant something…
even the length of a storm
Sliding one way on a sinful Sunday,
and another 
as a different season draws close
Mislaid utterances atoned in song
marked in streams that end 
when we do
Silent dreams extended 
and equally interrupted by fate,

From that a slew of words 
and names that fade…
with time
with pain 
Until our lives apart
remain simply lives
And memories of us result in poems
