Write your name

December 4, 2007
By Jenny White, Schaumburg, IL

write your name upside down
on paper all white
the shards of glass handwriting
pierce definitive night

in an unquiet sleep
dreaming all grey and blue
dream of sparkling glass
cast from an ocean world view

see through the glass
your watch heavy on my wrist
seconds torn from my grasp
many things i have missed

see through the glass
the sunset appears
you're running too fast
innocent light disappears

see all of these things
and come back to me once more
go from me once more
the skies open up
and glass tears rain to the floor

shards of glass
nostalgic and raw
pour out on the page
plead the future i saw
those words on the page
have now become mine
reflected like a mirror
etched like a design

write your name upside down
on paper all white
the shards of glass handwriting
form the reflection in sight.
