IMPRINTS ON THE SOUL LOOK LIKE / FEEL LIKE/SOUND LIKE

hands laced under sunny skies one small, one large, calloused fingers gently tracing along the curve of knuckles / a cotton candy sunset that arrives just when you need it most / lifetime upon lifetime of hide and seek / rendezvous /deep conversations / people who just get it / get you / remembering the details / the right hug from the right person at the right time / the opening notes of certain songs strummed on the guitar — an instant energetic flood / fingertips reaching reaching reaching — just missing, always missing / being relegated from something to nothing/trash to treasure, treasure to trash / the cold, metallic slice of scissors / bleeding / turned backs punctuated by slamming doors / being the thing left on the cutting room floor / the bitter sting of being blatantly and deliberately ignored / your heart in a glass jar, in once trusted hands, dropped from 35,000 feet in the air / shattering / silence / silence / silence / silence / trying and trying and trying and trying and knowing full well it won’t make one ounce of a difference / silence / misplaced hope / winless fights / rejection / you as the only one who gives a damn / silence / silence / silence
