Wisps of Wonder

Written by: Johnette Loefgren

   Wisps 
           of wonder 
      over you 
cling around 
     the things I do.

Can't dislodge 
       your silky light,
strings and strips and webs  tonight,

          breath you in
              and
       breathe you out,

        smothering ,

      in strands of doubt,

          why you left 
    and if you'll be,
  ever coming back to me.

  See these eyes 
     tattooed with grief?
you stole my vision like a thief,

         leaving 
in the darkest hour
     taking all my hope 
  and power..................

  I can't live and I can't die............
    with wisps of wonder 
        in my eye.
