Fainting

and if you should fall suddenly

into the vast cerulean blue

remember first to grab my hand

and i shall follow you

 

for the sky is vast this day

and impeccably alluring

my dearest one, let’s swim again

a firmament float enduring

 

and as the air grows thin

lips shall meet

and breathe me in

from giddy thought

to last embrace

consciousness slipping

you’ll see my face

Gathered stones

Did I ever tell you that I collect gems

and once with a discerning eye

like a crow diving for gutter foil

it was fake shimmer I couldn’t pass by

 

I pressed my hopes on a diamond cut

deeming it worthy to treasure in hand

but watched in dismay as it crumbled

into grey lustred grains of sand

 

Sift carefully the gathered stones

with tarnished imperfections to feel

treasure them as old friends

for they are in truth the most real
