(REPOST) Cyclical Rantings II



(REPOST) Cyclical Rantings II

Grab at air.
Reach into
a bushel of walnuts.
(Come away with as many
as you can.)
Hold sand in your fist.

The result?

Nothing.
Less than you thought.
A semi-congealed pulp that’s molded,
mimicking the inside of your hand
after quite a bit has slipped
through the cracks.

Why even try to grab, reach and hold?

For what?

Nothing?
Less than you think?
A mold?

My arms around you.
Your lips upon mine.
All the love in my heart.

We’re apart.

I still have air.
I was never really a big walnut fan.
But I run my toes through that sand
every night.

And branded upon my memory for eternity:

A sunny, breezy, fall-time day spent
walking with you. Watching you
adjust your hair in the wind.

Watching you lazily, mundanely
looking longingly out toward the horizon
through your sunglasses, disconnected but
still in the moment, catching glimpses of you
pining for life’s possibilities,
you and I talking about whatever.

Blissful, elusive moments spent
with you.

And then those later.

Grabbing,
reaching,
holding.

And now?

A mold (that not a single soul
will ever be able to fit into except
you).

Less than I thought.

Nothing.

Elusive as sand, walnuts and air.
