Moonlight Delilah... - Poem by Bryan Alexander

you left suddenly
Like candlelight from a room
when the wick is spent
and can give light no more

you left with honesty
painted by forked tongues
as quiet as an earthquake
as gently as the fingers of the wind
clawing out the eye
of this hurricane

the thin veil I saw you through
is gone, and so are you
but your echo still surrounds me

my love will leave you
drip by drip
dropp by drop
as glaciers submit
to an angry Sun

It will perish slowly
as the moss grows over
each second
and becomes a century

One day
you will reach for my love
and only find
the salt of forgotten glaciers

You will look for me love
and see only moss
green towering monuments
to the minutes I lost
being lost in you

you will seek me
and yourself in me
and find only a bad dream

And your cold soft lips
will be sick
with the taste of regret
