My Every Breath - Poem by Cordell Rich

By Cordell Rich

I remember your shoulders
and your skin in the light

your flames coursing through my veins
quenched only by your presence

scars burned deep into my future
to mourn some later date

every memory a tear upon my flesh
a tapestry of regret now scarred and healed

my every breath an invocation
to a God long wearied by my pleas

desperate I cry out
the moons silence my rebuke

my thoughts tremble at the question
if I but had the courage

would you be with me now
