Passage

Touch some part of me
while we wait for my soul
to be taken and crushed
like petals for scent.

I will neither enter
nor leave the room again.

Each moment
is a snowflake transforming
into a waterdrop
on a green leaf.

The border to the next land
is invisible to the naked eye
music is the only map.

I have walked away
without a word of goodbye.

You must stay on
wakeful
counting the barks of distant dogs
and the songs of the souls
needing bodies.

OctPoWriMo Poem 15 – Tenebrae

Sometimes we offer nothing
But to stay and watch
As each light goes out
Quietly
Lamentably
Inevitably
Rightly
Until the Bridge is crossed without us
And the darkness is complete

But for one candle secretly burning
In a distant room
