Everything That Will Not Change - Poem by Amberlee Carter

I want to remember the world this way:
The light, steadfast on the windowsill,
a breathless sky and the autumn as beautiful
as it is bitter.

The way it was just yesterday
when you held me against your chest, against
a backdropp of sunset: so many colors
evolving into darkness- rearranging themselves
into the first evening shadows.

I want to sleep with the memory of you
still fresh inside of my head, and the scent
of your kisses still clinging to my lips.
Your eyes: cathartic pools I wish I could dive into,
to drown myself in their prismatic vision.

How does it feel to see the world, to see life
through a third eye?

I wish I could see beyond my sorrow and live
beyond my darkness- then I’d see myself
not entirely unraveled, but tearing at the seams
to become something more, something other than
the girl with a big smile to sacrifice to the world,
who will always be just a little bit sad.

    Amberlee, your work never fails to stun and sadden me - but when I say sadden I mean it in the best possible poetic way. The way you describe human emotion in your poems is rare, very rare indeed. It is inspirational reading. All the best, Seán. (Report) Reply

    I disagree with Mr. Hassler. I think the line he cited as depth and character. Once again, a fine poem! (Report) Reply
