We grew
           the you and I
        of us
like the lily fragrant

and short our time
            but a fragment

I could have held
       a fallen pearl of dew
in the cusp
   of my palm lines

for longer than
        your mouth fell under
my eyes

from spilt
words
       sundered glance
we watched the wilt

now

you are not the treasure
of my vision        
                   I am blind

you said heroes
    move out from castles
and gardens
               chase the dragon
  
so

any moist wind
I fight
         it is only the breath
    of a beast
behind

the lilies rise in the waters
       rendering you
   I am but a fragment

how does
an air wisp
      raise a sword?

Severn
You conjure up phrases from your brilliant mind that throw perfect images into mine. And I am stunned.
Superb writing, as I expected

Girlie!  Girlie, girlie...You are amazing!  This poem is heartbreaking and wistful, and just simply wonderful (of course, you wrote it!).  I love your formatting, it lends so much to this piece...makes for a perfect read a'loud.     Keep it up, my friend!

Wow!  Love that last line...  It seems impossible but you know there has to be a way, deep down.  This was soft and beautiful, Severn.  Loved it.

Little One~
This is sheer beauty.
Your mind works in light that
brings your words to life.
The formatting is exquisite
and feathers the piece.
Wonderful, Kammie.

Beautiful, Kamla. From the title, I was afraid it was about that thing growing on my neck but I'm happy to see it was another wonderful poem from your ever-filled pen!

Another intricate navigation around the poles of time and memory, love and dissapointment. Any criticism I might have of the particulars is silenced by the total effect.
A wonderfully evocative piece.
Thank you.

Severn,
Wonderous words, each one your pen.
I kiss you hand, I love your zen.
