Keep You

Keep you alive

through the only life line

that I haven’t managed to sever.

Words; and how I need them

to keep you alive forever.


A time, in a life, of a person, on a rock, in the universe. 

A life that has moved 

on from me;

A surround 

of cottony clouds 

on the bluest day. 

Away, was always 

their intention.

Cannot fault them for that. 
A sadness, in subtle hum

as I sit among treasures. 

Breath so gilded. 

And, I do not know 

what evaporates gold,

but it must run true in me.
