Drizzle - Poem by Velvet Astraea Dido

calling out
your name in my head
a thousand distance
of a blank stare

the scent of sunset embraces me
as you lit the candle
afloat our dreams

in the still light
in the arms of slumber
be dead to the world,
and our thoughts linger on

quiet in the dark
with many eyes staring
but we,
gentle as the sound
understood it all…

shall never take you away
for its shower
offered you to me.

but lightnings
brought the cessation of dreams
cast out in the twilight

and now as I call out your name
across both worlds,
the echo of my soul
fades out with the sound.

still I know,
we will forever be connected.
and the weakness remains.
