little by little

in solitude she wanders
trapped by the silence

caged by the trees
in her forest of sapphire

she glows like the sun
from silver to gold

yet chooses the darkness
to blanket her shoulders

she hugs the pain within
and the emptiness throughout

like her longtime friends
the rain and the clouds

in moments of weakness
she cries to be free

to let go of the guilt
and the regret and the fear

but all she can do
is break off pieces of her soul

and little by little
let them carry her hopes

to fly high and laugh
like leaves in the sunshine

to drift far and rejoice
like butterflies in the moonlight

remix 061 ~ until the waterfall

until the waterfall

fluid strands
plummet upon
jagged shoulders

ledges below ledges
boulders beneath boulders
legends fading before legends
in a neverending series of echoes

whispering their forgotten mists of yore
weeping for tragic loves and glorious wars
cascading towards earth in their brutal crusade
until the waterfall princess casts her crystal forgiveness

laying in the grass

i gaze at her
laying in the grass
with her skirt strings trailing
like lazy kite tails swaying in the haze

does she realize her influence?

i smile at her
shining in the sun
as i spiral around her gravity
like icy satellites captivated by the fire

does she realize her power?

she winks at me
as sixty seconds whirl
and another sixty minutes swirl
and another twenty-four hours take flight

does she realize at all?

never meant

“i’ll be back soon”
he said

“just a few days”
he smiled

she smiled back
“okay, you promise?”

he nodded
“i promise”

one week passed

but he still couldn’t
bear the thought

he still couldn’t
bear the heart-breaking thought
of looking into her eyes

he still couldn’t
look into her soul-searching eyes
and tell her the truth

he still couldn’t
tell her that he never meant
to keep his promise

never meant
to be with her again

never meant
to see her again

never meant
to fall for her

never meant
to fall in love
with her

one month passed

he was never given
more than
