expanse

simple dressings
an empty space
drying roses
bolts of lace
purple moments
words clash again
the door is closing
count to ten

now heaven’s
just six
feet beyond
your reach

tears remember
wind burned cheeks
mottled windows
stained streaks
leaning the willow
arresting thoughts
something stirring
memory caught

now heaven’s
just six
feet beyond
your reach

now heaven’s
just six
feet beyond
your reach.
