She Walks Away


She walks away receding
A framed hardship
Once she chased boys
A child's different corridor
A mind alive then
The moment is grasped
As step by step
Today is no more

Today a gloved hand
Blue against the softness
Caressed her breast flesh
As the pink yielded
This way that way
To a palpable neutrality
Until there just there
A lump has appeared

Today is already yesterday
As step by step
To tomorrow ah tomorrow
The grip loses moment
Revelations will stream on
Chasing a lost appearance
Still walking away receding
With her own spectre

    I've been away. When I come back, I always go to you as one of my first. I'm never disappointed. Not here either. (Report) Reply

Whate'er we leave to God, God does,
