After The End, bloggity blog, poetry

sea glass green

Trees
Taller than I have
Ever seen

Tall as buildings
Tall as monuments
Nature’s statues
Relics

Skyscrapers of bark umber
Sea glass green leaves
Shimmering in the twilight heat

Glimmering haze oasis
Mirage hallucinations

Hallucinating
Clear as day
Clear as shallow seas
Shallow graves

Shifting light
Sun rays warping filter
Kelp wafting
anemone arms
Rays like waves golden

Waves
Curls
Gold

Like hair
Blue
Like skin

Skin on icicle fingers
Beckoning, coiling around mine

Slowly, I blink
Blink
Blink
Blink slow golden sadness submerged

She takes my hand
Dragging me into
The forest
Dragging me under
The trees

Dragging while drowning still
Still
Still like her lips
Still
Like my heart aching

“I’m so sorry…
…I
I will fix it…”

She only smiles
And then she is gone
