As twilight stretches her tired self
Your words glow
Untangling the dark web

Of frozen gestures–
I know we shall not any more
Let wild whispers grow

On the crowded stage
Of other people’s tableaux–
Your scent clings to my breath

Wherever I go–
It’s time to shut the door
On memories of April’s lost embrace

When angry words broke on our shore
Leaving us stranded on an island
Wreathed in smokeless silence.
