Your silhouette,
cloaking the shame
of my inaction,
as my heart beats
out of time
with the rhythm
of your life.
I’ve simplified the routine
of tearing down my own walls
as I count the moments
I’ve compromised
to be faithful to an ideal,
obligated as we are
to carry on,
I wait for you
knowing that tears
won’t resurrect the words
left unsaid, so
moving in peace, I
watch your steps,
the movements
of your hands
guiding my imagination
– this path
a memory
– or is it a dream
– this dance the reminisces
of you and me.
Hand in hand
and breath in breath,
we carry on strong
unto our deaths
– time is the circumstance
that counted us out
– tears can’t resurrect
the heroes of doubt.
