Dandelion Dreaming

I inhale, going cross-eyed watching the burning red ember at it’s tip…
I exhale rings and try to dowse shapes in the disappearing smoke…
You stopped…I started…cough…

I obsessively try to fathom where we went wrong…
Mind-mapping mythical memories and morning our futile dreams lost…
Where we SHOULD be…

I catch raindrops and tears in my weary, shaking palms
and get hypnotised in the puddles and lines that me and my weather conjure…

Solace is sadly a nostalgic nestegg of MY trivial treasured…
a montage of salvaged shared letters, conversations, texts, photos, emails
…and…the shared belongings, that in haste I gathered as…MY stash…

Strangers, strange we are…now…
barely uttering an ad-break of dialogue…
I piece together an enigmatic mosaic of who you might be now…
squares formed purely via second-hand conversation…

all my pathetic and seemingly disinterested queries…
are all that piece MY ill-formed relic YOU…and relic US…

    you have an outstanding insight
    the transitional essence of perception

    but happiness and joy can be found
    and i am really impresed with your skills of expression
