New Writing: Poetry

1.

As we walked hand-in-hand and silent,

basking in the streetlamp’s judgmental glare,

I would watch the interlocking shapes of our shadows

keeping time on the pavement.

~

Later, I traced eternity with my eyes shut,

following the outlines of your body

as we lay in the wrinkled sheets

of my single bed.

~

And now,

I will lay my body down,

As offering

As sacrifice

As feast.

~

I will stretch my legs out

as wide as they will go

wrapping them around you

to form a bridge between then and now
