to the sky with my arms
losing touch with my fingers & letting
my hands crawl away.
to get lost in the clouds
would be to say i was found in the first place;
i thought i was, once,
but i was mistaken.
taken backwards through time i’d blame clock hands if i hadn’t
noticed the new lines by my eyes &
those on your forehead.
there’s a lot here, to tell,
but why waste these moments on words when
the sky can say it all;
i watch the dusk turn grey & get washed away
& for the first time in a long while
i can breathe.
