Clementine

Thursday, October 8, 2009

There is no history between you and me
But a scribbled breath
A folded note
Tucked away between the cracks of my floorboards
sweet silver treasure.
I keep a strand of your hair in my locket
And the memory of your lit eyes brewing like grains of sand on my palms.
Clementine, I can hear your steady breaths when I walk between shadows.
I sleep in graveyards comforted by a decaying epitaph
that cradles what could have been,

what will never be.

This is beautiful Crystal! I love your usage of photography to compliment your poetry.

I love the sensory details of this verse "the memory of your lit eyes brewing like grains of sand on my palms."

And that necklace is so beautiful. Crystal Ball.
