Love Released

May 31, 2017

You and I

earth and sky, song and wine, ink and skin

not a shadow between us, the virgin sand

jealous, trapped between our toes, my heart bigger,

bigger than the sea.

Yours, a planet beyond the frost line

where no one has lived.

Did I hear the waves

when I pressed my ears to the bottle by your bed

or whispers and amorous murmurs

of others, once mirrored in your eyes?


As you leave me to hurt, I think-

If I shatter the bottle, will every shard reflect 

my misgivings or like

the circus mirrors show

the distorted avatars in which

I now see myself?

Bottle breaks, mirrors melt

a pool of quicksilver, I drown

in a toxic alchemy.

But the heart kicks, like it had been

taught to swim, desperate

for one breath…one breath.

An ashen body moves up

 rising like it had loved.

A Phoenix lies on the beach, resting

then walks to the water, scrubs her heart

with the salt of the sea.
