Salvation

By
More by this author
are your lashes
escaping from your lids?
or is that my imagination?
cause your eyes are
drowning the back of
my throat in
my neck.
feeling like that ocean i met.
you say that the
wind rustles at night;
shaking petals
as roots grow deeper.
your eyelashes melt
and so does your
hair.
it whips across
my cheeks on
my face
feeling like that breeze i traced.
you say that the
trees talk at night;
whispers budding into
leaves of screams.
your hair flies away
and so do your
arms.
they wind around
my vertebrae on
my spine.
feeling like that tree i climbed.

is that glitter
escaping from your eyelashes?
you ask.
or is that just my imagination?

no, i say.
nature's salvation.
