Do You Remember

Do you remember
two children, swinging
through the days like
wheat

laughing bright into
the universe?

(together we breathed
apart we shall end)

Our plans were colorful
and dreamed over thin strips
of silver and dry snakes
of clover rasping at our feet

Still I can taste
the strawberry stars
smell your eternal eyes

I remember leaping
and falling,
a firefly,
dangling from life
by my knees,
secrets whispering by like
the notes my ukulele never
played

And behind me you stood there,
sunflowers and tears in your
unbroken hair,
a goddess of love, a herald of despair

THe summer wafts back sad and slow to taunt me
for I can feel the ghost
of your voice in each beam
of light

(we started strangers,
strangers shall we go.)

friendship's mask
love's dressings
cracked from my
shattered whole
