Growing: Young and Old

The earth is swallowed by the stars as
we embrace beneath a shower of sparks.
Submerged in an eternity that stretches on
as we grow young and old together.

Sketching fine lines of patience
into the creases of my mind,
Where a guiding warmth shall calm me
the only places I need to hide—
The ebb and flow of your voice
as I drift in and out of sleep.
Often, the roughness of your hands,
ingrained with notes that dance behind your lips.

The innocence of youth caressed us
Bright souls filled with wonder.
Curiosity and carelessness were enough
to fill vibrantly long days.
Memories of warm nights spent
catching illuminated fire-flies.

Sweet longing.
All forms of simplicity driven deeply complex
amidst a valley of unsaid thoughts,
Guilty reminders of bitter betrayal.
Blinded by weakness: smoldering love.
A face set in stone again the backdrop
Of a swollen night’s sky.

Sweet, sweet longing.
