Twinges of golden brown in his eyes
as he sauntered in and out of her life,
crumpled remains from his traipsings
form a person, barely.

Was it only skin that she touched
when she reached out for him?
Or was there something more?

Frost burnt and freezing, sleep drizzled
its poison upon her desolate face,
tainting her dreams with thoughts
of another, a better.

Objects of admiration slip from her grasp
falling from the chain around her neck
shattering like glass on the pavement
when she trips.

Shivers in a cold enclosed area,
uncomfortable warmth disappears
she reaches out to touch his face
thin portion of arcadia to her.

Anticipation for the next encounter
iceflakes fall steadily from her eyes
she looks to recall a better time
and finds she cannot.

Golden brown eyes no longer haunt her
she looks into his icy blue mirror
the future fell out of her hands long ago
it rests in his now.

Oh my..............
I am lacking words...
this is so deep and so .....
forgive me...its one of those kinds of days when the excellent poems make me weepy...
you write light years ahead of your time,
this is a bittersweet beauty poetess Allysa.

"If you see lonely, clear skies turning stormy ...
Lightning strikes and all you see is blue ... this is me missing you"

Looking in the remnants of a shattered mirror,
and finding strength,
and beauty.

She desires to place
the shards of glass together
so she can see him again
comprehend him again

the way she once used to.
