Echoing Unanswered


I remember it all

Your eyes, blue

And soft as a summer sea

The wordless way you spoke with me

My heart is broken

Yet it still finds you everywhere

Time is an endless thread of longing

I am ever clinging

To the velvet petals of memory

To hold them back

From the inevitable unwinding

But they are fading

Like footsteps falling away

In empty spaces

Echoing unanswered

In the darkness

And the night is ever cold

Upon my pillow
