sometimes it hurts
to see me cry
but most nights I confess
tears are not for leaving
tho I am sorely pressed
to say goodbye
letting go
but for my heart
I might be gone
down the ways
a piece or more
beyond the reach of home
beyond the pull
of evermore –
the memory of touch
leaves are falling
storm clouds
into dust
