the way back

(will appear but once)

I fell into your eyes
found at last
held in place
the one called home
and lost was gone
to a universe
far far away
the door shut
and I was safe
my scent released
on each silky breath
finding its counterpart
on the breeze
carrying us along

until

it fell apart
like old glass
beautiful one moment
then only bitter shards
stranded at an
unfamiliar ocean
left to the vagaries
of the waves and tides
trying to find a foothold
in the sand or sea
no matter which
just a place
to begin anew

even though

it hardly seems worth it now
since all was lost
and me with it
flying without my wings
through dark spaces
to find my way
back home
or out of here at least
to some place else
where light is not
just a memory
but a feeling on
my tender skin.

Lost love. Some things you can never get back and some things haunt you forever. First love amongst them.

I am a very creative person and it’s my way of dealing with the world, inside and out. I am only happy when I am making things or painting or writing. There are just not enough hours in the day…. I am into poetry and photo manipulation at the moment and also dabbling in photography. :-)
