Goodbye Blackbird

Filed under: Uncategorized — lesturla @ 4:33 pm

Shall I now fall into words
like how we fall into a pit
of pain

realizing that
pain is the only place for you and me

For this is what you do
You make me want to compare you
to things, places or scents

You ask, am I the face in your dreams?

And this is how you are — you are my breath
and yet you are the one that takes it away

Oh, shall I now compare you
to the air that sustains me?
And kills me?

For you are more than that
You are where my life began, too

And there is no comparing this pain
Of feeling those fingers run through your hair
And realizing that it’s your own

And this is what you are
The hands that are no longer there
