Of The Purple Violets

Written 22/02/2013

Of the purple violets dribbling down
The window
He only remembered

Of the translucent tears
Coloring the cheeks
He perused the decades
He saw them all.

Of the words twice choked up
And the happiness swallowed
Of the liquid coughed down
And shrugged away quickly
Of the lead on the chest
And the fire in the ears
And the heart that pounds, and that pounds, and that pounds –

And the lights that go off
When he thinks it’s all done
And the dread when the
Tears are reborn

And when it doesn’t end.
And when the steps extend and extend and extend.
