Falling away

There’s only so much time to breathe
each shallow day a breath lost
there’s only so many miles of loving
where my hearts a wisp’d flower;
once there was a time for decisions and revisions
but now there’s only time for make believe.

I feel a falling away in the twilight
I feel a falling away from the wanting

your voice no longer echoes,
my dreams are mine to spin alone,

I feel a falling away in the twilight
the distance between red rimmed pleasure
and the place where you’re waiting.

There’s silence in the ebb and flow
my skin’s papyrus thin marked with
a collage of ripped emotion
brushed into vibrant messages,
you can tune in on a clear night
hear the universe laugh to itself
as we gesticulate incomprehension
learn quantum physics from six year olds.

I feel a falling away in the twilight
between the shadows death flickers
calls with soft promises,

steers the helm of unfoldment
steals my breath away.
