come share the unbearable weight of a grieving heart. imagine submerged in murky waters too deep to float. balancing life in between the wetness of dry tears and loneliness of loss.
today i boarded a beckoning mystical train to attend a captivating carnival. with a ticket in hand i hopped onto the waiting ride. tossing the twirling too many thoughts, i flew with lightweight strings released in freedom’s lightheartedness.
we were together, you & i, with little else to interfere. for a few attached moments you sat close to me holding hands as we enjoyed the weightless wonder, our two lives, sharing breaths of convertible air.
over too soon my feet touched the ground the half torn ticket clutched fast in my palm. you laughed kissed my lips and said a nickel’s worthy ride as you wandered away to a faraway flowered field.
a day in april 2008…the day started out cold and foggy. soon the sun smiled, the sea began to sing. leaving you behind, the hardest task i ever had to perform.
to linda may the days become lighter in heart in a way you never thought possible…. previous dialogues
One thought on “u & i”
I love the airy weightless feel to this. The swings used to be my absolute favourite carnival ride, even when I was an older teenager, and it was considered much cooler to go on the dramatic scary rides.
