the emptied sea of you and me

instead of one
i took ten
instead
of ten
i had none
i had a few friends
but left them all
behind
for this
just for
hopelessness
this beautiful hopelessness

i remembered the sky
falling into the sea
and the look of
excitement on your face
as we held our hearts
together
instead of one
day
i look ten
until they bled together
into none
than
only one
boundless mass
uncontrolled and
beautiful
as the emptied sea
of what was
once
you and i
disappeared into
only and forever
this is what i had
to say

the emptied sea of you and me

Jason Franklin
