The heart sinks

sun beneath rim of horizon
lost beneath the line
the one crossed
leaving me behind
left as shattered glass
shards cut and tear
bleeding of all I know
stain the page scarlet
the edges pierce
cutting through crimson lines
upon palms spread slow
the need to breath
but busied hands
stifle the exhale
affection merely a suggestion
feelings ended where touch began
lost was the day colors fade
repeat the white and grey
you were the liquid fire
slipping through my hands
though painful to the touch
I would grasp to understand
Undone in the unknowing
No longer kindling for the burning
song no longer tempting
music from another room
A glance in clouded mirror
with refocused eyes
cease to be the one
life in the etching
the journey now has a name
duel over
heal hearts broken bone
toss gloves to the grave
carve your name in stone
cover of  book now torn
pages lay unread
though creased and worn
still strong is the spine
choosing to swim

against my own tide
to you
I cut the line
