Pantoum 01 Unnamed

Struggling to breathe I
close my eyes, and
your shape becomes a picture
against the mountain where we…

Close my eyes and
refrain from finishing
against the mountain where we
lost ourselves in each other.

“Refrain from finishing,
please.” I cried, as we,
lost, ourselves in each other,
held on with muddied fingers.

“Please!” I cried. As we
searched the mountainside, our hopes
held on. With muddied fingers,
palms caked with love, I

searched. The mountainside, our hopes,
lost in the rain.
Palms caked with love I
touched your face, as the water ran clear.

Lost in the rain,
struggling to breathe, I
touched your face. As the water ran clear
your shape became a picture.
