An Inch

On a fading sight of beauty
An inch away from tenderness
An inch a way from deadness
Or inch away to sleep against thy bosom
Mad about the false world
And the long wet grasses longing for the sun
An inch

Of the fading beauty, there is hope
But Inch away from it
The unknown deep calm eyes
The slow silent breath
And the glory years of this summer remind me of death
Departing me from thy bleeding heart
But again inch away from it
Inch away from the forbidden kiss
Inch away from blind dreams
And Inch away from the whispering death
An inch

Across the pavement in the night
On the edge of griefless beauty sight
I remember the vile blur words
So weak, so little
But the inch of stillness so brittle
I remember the holding of hands
So soft, so tight
But the inch of frightening kiss of bit
But inch away from it
An inch

    reminds me of a broken heart that longs for that lost love but is gripped with so much fear, they can only dream and wish.

    this is so heart felt.
