goodbye



summer built us a house made of  silver string
 oh, i cried as i stepped inside. 
how did you get here?
but you just smiled at me.

as we whispered stories by the glow of your heart
and washed our hands in the river coming from my spirit
i learned to love you.

oh, i cried as the sun set.
how was i so afraid of you before?
but you just smiled at me.

and yet, as the days passed, i could not look past 
that mask you wore
to hide your face from me.

summer built us a house made of silver string.
oh, i cried as we peeked outside.
please don't lie to me anymore.
but you just smiled at me
like it hurt.

summer cannot last forever.

our string house fell apart,
for we had come to the end of our changing.
 i looked into your eyes and pleaded for you to stay
but you just smiled at me.
we both knew.
we both knew you couldn't.

on the day you left
i went looking for a trace of you.

now i sit with that old mask in my hands
weeping.


goodbye summer.

  3. WOW LIKE FALL EXISTS WHERE YOU LIVE.

    Like, you kind of know where I live (sending me the giveaway package and such) but ack, there is not really a transition from summer to fall. It's like, SUMMER, two weeks of fall, and then snow, which was what everyone was greeted with yesterday, to the point that the electric generator, both the primary and back up ones at my school, were working half of the time, the lights were out, trees were blocking roadways, and there were so many car accidents in the ditches.

    Yikes.

    xoxo Morning

  10. oh those beautiful October photos ♥

    and oh, those beautiful words. how do...how do you just...how do you do that? You create and tear apart a word in a few mere lines, something professional authors can't do in three volumes of novels...just how do you...wow. all I can say is God has truly blessed you with a deep and powerful gift.

  14. tbh: I hate summer. I'm always happy to see the first signs of fall, the reassurance that summer is finally at an end. But your poetry is so beautiful, it's actually making me miss summer a little bit. I never thought anything would make me do that.
