Anodyne

words not spoken 

carom from the walls of time

silence separates hearts

yours and mine

I’m leaning upon crumbling bones

recalling the taste of your tumbling tears 

rivers will never run backwards 

the current unwavering through the years 

change arrives when it chooses 

often leaving us wanting more

following the blazing sun

clouds roll by to even the score

right down the middle 

trouble rambled a path

our turn had come

to live with sadness’ wrath

towards the door without your thoughts

fraying threads have you running 

when you return it will settle

but I already know you aren’t coming

goodbyes offered at this time

beckon me in the wrong direction 

I’ll always hold you

while my soul seeks resurrection
