    Rage clouded my throat in a boiling mass, catching at my lips just as it was about to pour over. My clamped mouth scalded with the heat of words bit back, and threatened to overflow. The ground warmed with the red flowing from your body, the iced soil thawing just a little to welcome it. […]

    I would wake up early every day. Do the wok assigned. Rode my bike down to the store to pick up something from a list one day. Met your eyes from across the room. And all my prayers were answered.

    She lay in the bed of clover, a blue arch of nothing above her that reflected itself in her dark eyes. Her mouth took shape around words, but I could not hear any of them, as I was too drawn up in her figure, in her smiling face that laughed at the sky.

    I’m wrapped in a warm sweater, but it doesn’t compare to being wrapped in your embrace. I wish you would come home. I wish for a lot of things. I wish we never fought. I wish you were still here.

    The world has tilted out of proportion once again, twisting the way its people think about it and live. It always changes… It never stops. Will we?

    The trees whisper to me, sending dappled light dancing across my face as I watch the blue sky that will soon fade to gray. Winter is coming. You still live in green now, but you will loose the leaves soon, turning into skeletons of wood.

    I bite the inside of my cheek as you walk away. Do I call out? Say I’m sorry, beg forgiveness? Or do I turn my back and forget… I stand and watch you walk, unable to speak a word.

    I’m overjoyed to meet you, I really am. I wouldn’t lie, at least to your face. A laugh. No, no lies here. I’m glad to meet you… I really am… I know you already. I always have. I miss you.

    I leaving you, as impossible as it may sound. I will travel as far as it takes and as far as the bleak winds will take me. As far as I can go into the black.

    Things are looking up. No longer do the bleak sheets of winter clothe our streets, but sun and green is poking through, pulverizing the cold and dreary. The Bleak.

  • Mattie commented on the post, mist 8 years, 9 months ago

    I see you through the mist, smiling slightly as you walk towards me holding the single possession I hold most dear. It is kept in a small velvet sack you dangle from your fingers. I take it gently, giving you the small smile I use for thanks. I open the sack and mist flies from […]
