six strings along the cumberland

summer
with its fleeting wings
drew closed like a mourned chapter
sliding down my hair in fading yellow

guitar dreamer
you strummed your nimble fingers
down my heart threads
acoustic humming hit the lake shore
echoed off the shimmers like soul shadows

you smoked your cigarette in silence
as you clumsily smiled at me
distance is not realized till hindsight kicks in
i walked deaths miles with you
spoken like a lip to my cheek
and salt rain on my lashes

you were like a dark wolf
crying in the midnight
harsh as decembers rain
yet
smooth like deep waters
and sexual in the way your lust spoke through
torn jeans and sad eyes

my heart danced for you strawberry dreams
in mid july

now winter spills in
a hard light full of natures sorrow
those strings stopped their song
there i lay like ophelia
in repose and soft destruction

six strings along the cumberland
