What can I say –
There are no words left…
No correct ones, anyway, but even without words
love’s heart lingers.
The useless words drip down the windows of my soul like rain
Turning snow to slush
And white noise to wet mud.
Sucking me under again.
The memories can’t be erased, or ignored.
And although they can’t be sucked back into non-being,
They begin to fade and with time become so thin they blend with the dripping snow,
But still I cannot, will not, forget or give them up.
I know the memories will remain mine,
Always mine and each time the same.
They will stay in my mind beautiful and true
Until time steps out of time and begins again.
