imperfect darkness

 

Tablo reader up chevron

minerva

grey eyes stare deep into my soul.

i long for her-

i need her-

but she leaves in an instant.

perhaps,

i'm not enough for her.

perhaps,

her perceptive gaze saw through my wall,

that i so carefully put up,

between me and everyone who looks upon my face.

and she saw me.

truly saw me.

for who i am.

and she left.

always.

my father stepped in,

carefully maneuvering his way across my room,

late into the hours of darkness,  

and kissed me in the place 

he always did-

in the middle of my forehead,

and said that he would love me forever.

but i let myself cry,

a stream of salt lining the creases of my eye-

because forever seemed like it would end too soon-

as always and forever-

two different things, 

are always both murmured in the same breath.

god

a long time has passed

since I spoke to them in my dreams.

who are they?

they are the raindrops that stop just before

the girl steps out of the car

in that pretty dress that must not get wet.

they are the rays of hope that touch the soul

as a young woman contemplates death and peace.

they are a man 

they are a woman

they are eternal love.
