These are the ones.
The heaviest moments
that weigh down my
heartbeat like sacks of rice
being pelted at my chest.
Each grain is a bullet
piercing the softest parts of me.
You brought out the soft in me,
though. You ran your fingers
along my jagged edges,
always making sure to smooth
my roughness. You never left me
you were never harmed in the process.
Your words had such a way
of calming my demons.
You spoke softly to the child in me,
And I surrendered
my hopes and dreams to you.
These are the ones, the minutes,
as the clock counts down
our departure. The moments I dread,
when I’m reminded that this
eternal love, this eternal feeling,
I’m reminded once more
that you are not mine,
until time pries it’s jealous
hands from you, and finally keeps its promise.
