fabled pain & romance… 

this leave of time
grieves 
substantial slip
takes absence  
floats away
pain is nothing 
and everything i know
of that my bones understand
deep marrow never exists
without ache
neither do lips for breath
or pressing need
I will fade from now on
having known his precision cut
art his words carve
edging my skin
a secret only my fingertips recognize
silent history is left to wind
trees whisper fables
singing so softly of romance
intimacy in the sound
waiting for his alternative heart
perhaps fear is taking hold 
watching it all dissipate
climax of unwritten history…

and my heart
left grasping 
his evaporation
