A Flower for You

on tangled hair
you lay there alone
you bite your nails
you laugh so hard
on your hazy lines
you dance you sing
you cry you laugh
on moods that swing
like a crazy pendulum

you say my name
without remembering
what love was there
once, everlasting

you vomit
what we had and
then you swallow them
all again

i cry seeing you
like this
away from your senses

i hand this flower
for you
the smell may make
you return
from day one
when you were real
when you still feel

    Nothing is
    Permanent; the crazy
    pendulum of time
    holds this truth
    in fast flowing rivers

    budding flowers
    reach from the earth
    to touch the heavens,
    their scent tangling
    in threads of dark
    then snaking back
    seeking the ground
    where minds wonder
    along winding roads.

    with ideas in my head,
    I get up from my desk,
    walk outside to check
    the sky; it’s fine. (Report) Reply
