I smiled sadly for a love long lost
From an old journal
I smiled sadly for a love long lost to tears and wishes and dried up wells and inside felt a great wall crack splitting side to farthest side a dam flooded with torrent anew. From wellspring to memory, I lost inside the downpour left dry, cracked and empty now inside filling with brackish delight Breaking away the docks washed by hurled in a sea of storms and tore from me those lingering dreams and anchors to the past. Set adrift the touching the breathing and perfumed hair of long gone winds pulled along amidst the waves to endless sky and endless sea. On this shore buried deeply my feet and legs and torso drought with fear or pain or numbness parched for any small piece of rain to fall of waves to splash or sweat to rise. Waiting in vain for tears to fall when all had washed love long away.
