the seasons ceased to change the moment the ripples in your heart were swallowed by the sea
you and I in the past tense
to say we’d from the weeds in my veins where embers used to bleed
this cannot be
orange and gold burst into red the moment your pulse eluded me
told me no, a void will not suffice, as if you’d allow me to fight
set you free
there is no empty space next to me
it was we that I could see
there was never an and when it came to you and me
you took us, you see, a kindred tree with leaves to bare if only the seasons could change
I’d say we’d, but there it is, that place for me which I cannot concede
you and I in the past where we shouldn’t be
It’s your fire; you alone may accept its light
to show me what I’ve seen, stoke my calendar, swap April from Autumn
create a summer’s breeze, allow me to see what the space in your heart has stolen from me
Pull morning from night and make me believe
my heart conspires to cover the lines in your face in my memory
but only because when I say we’d, the past may continue to rain from our tree
where no and swings free
just a well-worn path for us to see winter fall to spring
and summer to bring you back to me
