A Poem a Day (61): Linger

Another for JD Mader's 2minutes go... kicking my writing arse... something needs to!


You know the glass reveals your smile

Try as you will to hide it away

I can see it even in this dark

When the sea breaks and splits the light in two.

If I kiss the curve will you stay?

If I turn and walk away will you follow?

These days are meant for learning

Awakening thoughts in me I’d forgotten

Lost in a drift upon a breath of yesterday

These things I touch to find them gone

And yet your smile remains

Calling me to remember and forget the rest.
