Heartsick


Standing among the inconsolable.
Shoulders meet, faces greet.

Unshedded tears gasping for air.
Painted with the buds of sweet smells
Reminiscing of a life that once stood
among this vibrant cluster of hues.

Her eyes reflecting
Shades of yesterdays
hazed over with red, white and blue.

My arm wraps around her,
a simple hold releases
the sea of tears crashing
into her hands.

All we've known, oceans apart.
All we are, side by side.

Words never uttered
Everything is spoken.

Only love will keep her afloat.

In earth or heaven;
Finding thy way through prison-bars
Up to the stars;
Or, true to the Almighty plan,
That out of dust created man,
