the veil

Heather T




a thousand words 

between each line

a thousand days

one wisp in time

a touch, a kiss

a well placed rhyme


will you miss me

when I'm gone


a thousand tears

that burned my face

a thousand sighs 

that met each grace

a life that leaves

a fragrant space


I will miss you

when you're gone


ten thousand years

to write upon

ten thousand lights 

without the sun

I smell your hair

and I'm undone


just dream, love

I'm right here

  • Comment from author about the poem: This was written in the same emotional context as "mortal", hence the similarities. I will likely and eventually explore this more.
