If you could see me now,
Would I beckon life for a freeze?
To dig into it’s unreachable compromise
In search of the slate
That was you and I?
In countless of times touched
The depth of what seemed a perfect tie
Only to come out
Bruised and shaken to a sight that lacks
The sunshine in your smile.
I have the very sound of your departure.
Those footsteps would rapture
The veins in my eyes
Blinding the sight of your return
And the fabric of a cold you still
A nightmare to my palms.
In my days dark
I’d light to flame the poetry you’d written
Comprehending too deeply
A start so sweet preyed by a tragic ending
How did I not see the edges
of hell in the heaven you presented?
If you could see me now you ask.
I am a thousand wild seas
Sunbathed by thunders of a sailer stranded
I am a rainbow of ruins
Upon a sky of odium
a cave from the once had and now gone
Gone and gone into the sails of strange men.
Here you stand returned.
Asking if you could see me now
Here I am,
Having only the taste of your touch
Standing in contrast to the chambers you’ve had
If I could see you now
Would the contours on your body
Remember its painter?
How long should I kiss your lips to remember.
To dismember the pleasures
I never took part?
This broken heart is not for mending
And if you could see me now,
This is what you made-
A world war of a human
The longing for a once more less humid
Dry with cracks of love forgotten
And if for a minute you’d think your
Tears would water me back to a forest
That was us
It wouldn’t hurt to tell you
Of how I turned your scars to this face I wear.
If I could see you now,
In all the emptiness you look like
In all the chaos I’m running from
There’s nothing imagined
That could bring to heart my broken touch.
