in the haze of loss is love.

Young Death

You suddenly stopped being.

She has cried out. She has seen you
Everywhere in everything. The memories
beat at her, and yet her blood coldly refuses
To pulsate. Regret is the circled zing within her heart. Your
Soft departure has her keening endlessly with the ache...
And I three thousand miles away must wait
On the window. The pain must settle down
To be the manageable beast that sings of
Of a future.

Old and alive I hold all to you.
You departed as usual grinning.
Early as ever I let go of your heart
So you would return to us bringing
This incredible beginning.
