Fears of Trees and Tears

Posted by para on April 21, 2018 at 9:10 PM

Everything stays the same for me

I see

Everything stays the same

For you the trees move

With the rhythm of the wind

But dare not leave their roots


Bored

Death

Stagnant

Dark candle

 

Flame

That’s all you are

Tiny flame that licks the scalded blackness

Only

Because you can

I don’t think you could go away


I hope

Break my heart


Leaves

Burn me

In your descent


The 80s are gone

As dry and

As brittle

As spent wax

And my biggest fear


One day

Things won’t stay the same

For you

And nothing will ever

Be the same

For me buried beneath the tree

 

Smoldering ember

In the throes of murder

Suicide


Bloody

Sparks

Falling star

Tears

Tears


My biggest fear

You’ll love someone else
