forget you (k)nots

(originally posted Dec 2016)

attempts to alienate confusion

decaf, a necessary intrusion

I miss you.

 

float me past the contusions

the knots in my shadow crave fusion

I spill you.

 

the fragments in frosty perfection

arranging the shards of reflection

I see you.

 

memory’s space incandescing

cauterise weds convalescing

I place you.

 

the pieces not lifed in competing

the peace not in ice but the heating

tapestried sensed in the meeting

I love you.

  1. I read this and the next piece, which I thought could almost be a continuation. I really like the sense of touch and taste about both of them, whether hard or soft, fluid or brittle, unique phrasing and eloquent flow. I read through the comments carefully for fear I would meet myself and cause an explosion due to the temporal anomaly. Apparently I am still here, mostly intact. Great work, Vanessa.
