I remember

We were traveling.

The sun spilled out of your mouth

Laughter danced In your eyes.


On the balcony

Bodies full of tomorrows.

God rested on our skin

Life and love under our Fingernails.

You encouraged us

to scratch away our weak selves.


We watched the sunrise

Prepared our hands and feet

For the road ahead

Minds soaked in ideas for the future

But then…



I find myself swaying between

Bob Marley shots to the heart

and celestial pool games.

That sinking feeling

When a star implodes

Silence, darkness.


And then…

Memory blossoms.

The sun spills out of our mouths

Laughter spills out of our eyes

As we drown in the light of your memory.
