Still Poem


Charlotte Mair


A tissue please?
They flow
…how they flow
for none other
than old true love

My cheeks are flush
salt penetrates
and burns
weathered pale skin

I am old willow
now filled
with understanding
and grace
this strong root
deems its hold!

An only soul
I truly love
is lost within
the boundless depth of foam
and undercurrents of life
I remain fearful
that I’ll sink down 
into fathoms of love
… stranded inside
my sailor’s arms
once again

So try 
seek kindness
in my gesture
as I disobey
love’s call
days of sweetness
take no bitter
taste upon your tongue

For even though we’ll not meet on these plains of earth
we will always remain one
as the candle burns on
ever more
