A glimpse of nothing

Rocky mountains of tan sand

I thought I saw you.


“Don’t leave me” he begged

She stared through his eyes and left

The door slam echoed.


Imagine the world

an oasis of kindness

white velvet hands stroke.


Chipping at my heart

like broken glass exploding

Did you have to leave?
