I tuck you even further away
Like the others deeper past.
Be still, admidst the swirling
Bright lights and smoky clouds.
I saw your face between the shards
Of light and smiles and dance.
Eyes blinked twice, confused and torn
And just like that you were gone
Which best, for hence I sleep tonight
And find my quiet peace again.
I exhale you on these whispering lips
Your name escapes and flees.
Released into the atmosphere
To assemble itself again.
I tuck you even further 'way
Exhale you on my breath.
I wash my hands, both polished clean
Rub my eyes. Your image gone,
I turn my head to someone new
And smile again, no longer you.
