Fell

by Maher   Nov 22, 2017


Have you seen the waves that drip from the sky -
bound by the Earth and the faces of tides?

Or the clouds of storms in which you could swim,
where a hurricane's eye sleeps in the wind?

A sunset curses the falling of night;
hexed to return the taking of light
that the shooting star stole silently,
as she lit the heavens with silver tears.

One more pass 'round the ocean-clad Earth
to watch her love as he slowly turns
from the sting of the sun
to the calm of the moon;
it lasts not long
before he
pulls.

And as he turns, she draws ever real.
With every moment, she's breaking - still.
She closes her eyes, as does he his
to brace for the hurt of their first kiss.
