Echoing Unanswered

…in the darkness

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
