when you broke

how the sky does
over the sea,
you wept 
in your entirety
to leave forever 
the whole of me

'Remember when you broke how the sky does over the sea, you wept in your entirety to leave forever drenched the whole of me. Now baffled waves tear through with mad yearning in remembrance of you, but always fall back into the pits of me, indelible, unsounded world of memory. Each night I gaze at you and at times you look back at me, just long enough to fill my dreams with a great melancholy; your tattered sighs, your moon like heart and a thousand watery stars of your eyes.' ~ A foreplay of letters #YQBaba #soafl #sea

Many years have passed
and I can't remember
the dreams,
but certainly can't forget
the whispers of my longing
for you,
that swallows the soul
in sleep.
Twilight adores the world
with sad distant glances,
in the shadow of earth
are scattered the petals 
of forgotten tulips;
the fragrance runs under your skin.
A ship's light 
disappears in the distance,
falling from the horizon.
A tear escapes silently
searching for the ridges of your lips.

I am simultaneously enchanted and distressed by those dreams of you from which I wake with a hungover soul. #YQBaba #soafl

I have an ashtray full of your memories,
and much like a cigarette
when the remembrance 
comes alight,
I feed my insides
with the endless
burning fumes
of a touch so missed
on my fingers.

Tomorrow I might 
remember you less,
for the yesterday 
when you had me
undone in earnest.
But today,
today let me vanquish,
let this slow simmering soul
in your memories tarnish.
