I still have hope for us to be together
To find peace amongst all the sorrows
We baptised the other into, Drowning.
I take responsibility for my part, I have to
You refuse to talk, call me distant anon
And yet fool I prize your love, Pleading.
My hope is simple, it’s grounded
It’s a fall leaf cushioned by the breeze
But it falls, slowly, it falls, Condemning.
My leaf with your name broke anciently
I summoned all the gales in my world
To keep it afloat, I cannot, Accepting.
I give in to the urge, free the enslaved gales
My leaf with your name touches the bottom
My world quakes, I take the leap, Not Being.
