If I could reverse past hour and sun

Spread the love

Until recently I hadn’t
noticed the sun-drenched
sky, how can one bathe
in its light and yet tremble
upon heavenly sight?

How readily you kiss me,
like a post-it note
you lay it on.
Perhaps feeling is a dish
unsung to the callous.

Like placid brown water
you remain unruffled,
can you hear the sound
of a slow-breaking heart?

I have given up trying 
to understand you,
in hopes that arriving
moment won’t nearly
be as painful.

    The post-it note kiss is a unique image and so painfully suggests one who takes another for granted. An unhappy refrain indeed.
