Bittersweet Reverie

i remember the days
when beauty
came easy
i felt it diffuse me
when i breathed
it flowed through me
but now my heart
is like a tangled skein
no longer do i move
freely
and beauty
does not come so easy
it crystallizes on my lips
in mid-exhalation
like rain
turned to hail
in its impatience
to kiss the earth
