Surrogate Goodbye

shontelle-say-hello-to-goodbye-train-tracks

I feel your body

Expanding next to mine,

Curdled into sleep.

Bodies linked

By inevitable stillness.

Secluded in your hopes,

Yours is the certainty of blindness – 

Mine the despondency

Of broken masts,

Stranded in windless blue.

As an eyelash disentangles itself

From the weave of your dreams,

I taste its resting place:

My surrogate goodbye.

    • Is it not strange that the idea when it first came to me was of a father and child, yet once penned I think it could just as easily be about two lovers. Thank you, Chris.
