you build

a barbed wire fence

between

yourself

and others,

then watch

quietly

as they all

string themselves up

attempting

to

scale it.

there is glass

embedded in this rock-

beautiful

fragile

glass –

it is buried deep

within you.

look carefully.

you may see

a hundred myriad

lights,

refracted, broken,

prismed,

focused through this dark stone-

a hardened bleakness-

transformed into

beauty in the most

unexpected

places.

some no man’s

land

of emptiness,

the

space

inhabited

between

beyond

the gaps.

Transitory as

a shadow,

the real you

and me

twists

and flips

and contorts,

Never stands still –

I wonder

could you

find us

on a map.

how will i ask for

ordinary things like food

and drink when all i…

i think that it was

seeing you

in full bloom,

at the very height

of spring –

strong green buds plaited,

bright petal

sheen and shine,

all the colours

twined.

it

 brought me to tears.

I know

how very much

we were a symbiosis,

your  new green verdant growth

tied to

my  mud stained

cleansed hands.

I was the first one who had cared for you in years.

Parted.

Uprooted.

I cry for us both now.

sunshine dreaming white

snap crisp breeze grazed – bed linen

pegged to a new day

ball step to heel pad,

this edgy rhythm roll mine,

it pounds out the pain.
