Syrup

come gather

all ye disciples of despondency

fine purveyors of hurt

..

come hither

and gather by my light

as it burns and inhales

your pristine pathos

..

i’ll collect your brittle bark, shedding

your crumbling edifice of self

so raw, so cherished

and with your sycamore soul thus exposed

sit beside you

seeking your sugared self

spile driven deep

a spigot set to seep

your syrup

oh so

sweet

Exhale

I spread in the shallow sea

and sink into the cool

eyes unblinking

 

the edges of the sky shall blur

the clouds lost to me

i no longer hear your voice

muffled against ocean whispers

captured in hollow shell

 

raindrops scatter as tears

silent promises dilute

I exhale and sink further

my body settling on sand rippled

now to toss gently with sea grasses

until a new tide makes me whole
