our etched memories

Post by pmmurphy » Thu Apr 20, 2017 11:19 am

i was destined for pages
best written backwards
because you mirror'd my thoughts

your mind a reflection of my heart
held in my hands and gleaming in your eyes,
ending the dancing circus of a chained peripheral
being left at your disposal and timid release.

i was needing your echo,
through the lights and mischief
the sound of a time
where aromas are found in nights of an orchard
inside a memory of shared blossoms

where inside these flowers
across this land...
we made scrapbooks
of Japanese paper,
as i was lined hallways
where you could capture
the essence of who i am
in black brushstrokes

ichi, is just one number
we wrote, for
there was only one reason we knew
to keep etching inside this
bamboo diary

as even though
i shun past an evening light
you trickled my heart into the place
where prisms can finally be free
from the rainbow cast upon the screen
and the blank reflection on my walls.

for if you were not inside me
to bring my heart to bloom,
i would still be merely brushstrokes,
without you.

A picture paints a thousand words, but this evokes genuine emotion in connection with what you're writing. I really like it!
