point of grace
that heady feeling returns only for a moment
and i go back to a time of lesser everything
a walk around the block
alone together in the calm
in the dark with you
two paths once on the same journey
created by years
sustained by memories
forging on still because we do not know what is ahead of us
our two lights across an expanse
of meadow, of highway, of city
i can feel the distance
next to me
the unquiet mind
the lost hope; the emptiness and abandon
the unwanted life that hangs on
to what it only remembers to be real
all of it is nothing anymore
there is no life in this breath
there is no meaning in covenant
a face merely exists; a body's mass
inches apart yet miles away
and slowly i drift
as you just watch me go
