There will never be another time as this
Where the trees will grow both up
And down
And sideways.
Like the rivers of my heart beating eternally
I will always love you.
Standing here, on this rock
On this impasse
On this broken-hearted intertwine.

I have always loved you
As you bathed in the light of the illuminated sunset
A dance of pink and golden purple.
Twist and descend your roots here.
The kiss of your aura against my skin,
I felt your breath upon me
And the trees
They watched us.
They made us so.

I have to love him now
And throw only apologies if immeasurable,
As I did the day I asked the universe to comfort you
And guide you forever home.

There is only you
The slickest of the the celestial serpentine.
There is only you
There is

It was a choice I had to make
And one I hated.
It was difficult and possessed
As though the colors of the world
Might swallow me whole.
But I will stretch and I can bend,
A shape-shifter standing only on the pinkest horizon
Where the trees will grow both up
And down
And sideways.
