The sole of my bare foot

Touches the dew of the grass

Where we would run from dusk till dawn in

Sun, rain and snow

 

We were more than lovers

More than soulmates

Two spirits separated by

Layers of skin

 

Unable to melt into each other

Unable to fade our spirits together

Unable to cease as two

Unable to become as one

 

And now you’re gone

Incapable of taking the pain

Of loving in physical form only

You went and became a spirit

 

Without me

Leaving me alone

Facing a loveless existence

Until I become a spirit

 

But the soles of my feet

Feel the soul of your spirit

Through wet, fresh mud that

Seeps through my toes as

 

Tears roll down my mask

And I sink slowly towards you

Moving ever closer to you

Becoming one with you

 

Forever
