Ornate Frames

Ornate frames
picture perfect moments
captured for all time.
The walls of my mind
a paradise of you and I
Overcast reflections, wild flowers,
beauty and the beast,
leafless trees, petticoats of confetti
August moons – everything has
meaning – even without sound
In billows I lay lifeless,
of living – of breathing
Images drowning on a crowded bus
The dust of sunshine disperses
bare what once, was mine
Hot coffee rude stares strike
me from all sides
Bent the weeping willow – me,
falling downwards, swirls.
Piece me back together china doll
loneliness innate faithful, sits
at my back gate
Do you hurt inside if some
memory takes hold or when the wind
blows ashes grey and cold that
settle on your soul
