staring at a grassy knoll
speckled with young trees,
i sit.
sun beating down upon me
as birds shriek, cry, sing, swoop.
squirrels scurry through the
wild grass,
carefully pulling strands apart
in search of food.

my eyes see this.
my mind processes this.
but my heart.
oh my heart.
my heart struggles
like the cardinals forever
fighting at the bottom of this
grassy knoll.

an owl calls from the next cluster of trees.
the “hoo hoo”
only brings tears to my eyes
and a weight to my chest
as i think only to answer with
“you you.”

fresh air surrounds me
yet i cannot partake.
unable to smile,
unable to move,
so i sit.
in the midst of paradise,

aching for one more word
one more echo of your voice,
vestiges i know
i must let go
but things with which my
shattered heart
has sewn itself shut.

you found the hidden passages
of my heart,
hidden passages long ago
lit them with your torch,
now they still shine brightly.
the entrance crumbled
without warning,
but the heat emanating
from within
rivals that of the sun.
it burns within my chest.
tears will not extinguish the
flames burning inside.
neither does inducing an anaerobic state.

with a burning chest,
a lost mind,
and a body yearning
for your touch,
i sit,
in the midst of paradise,
with vestiges of love
now trapped forever
behind a
landslide of molten rocks.
