Fall

Time through the eyes of the gods

And in a moment
We realized that time didn’t exist
For we had lived something eternal

Autumnal winds

Autumn came
With an October wind
That brought a crisp hue of orange
To the canopy of the city
A sea of flickering lives
Hurried about
When the autumnal winds blew

Through the elements

Out of torments,
Storms form the north,
Rains from the south,
You seemed to grow
Declining to recognize
The lack of warmth
All along promising to yourself
That one day the sun would come

Falling in the night

I saw a beam of sun wink at me
Before it crashed full force
Into the petal of a flower
Bursting with deep blue veins
And with this solar warmth
Exudes a fragrance
So sweet
We became intoxicated
And threw around heavy words
And forgot to guard the walls we had built
And so they fell
As we fell with the sunshine
And became drunk with love deep into the night
