nothing

in my heart
there is a hymnal
in my mind
a stained glass refrain
through my fingers
arcing poetry
across my tongue
bitter disdain

my bones
are calcified regret
my eyes
blinded by desire
my nostrils
filled with wildflowers
my feet
set upon the fire

her smile
cracked the armor
her touch
the sweetest pain
her kisses
quenched in honey
as her tears
fell like rain

i was nothing
before she found me
into nothing
i was tossed anew
there is nothing
but her echo
nothing i embrace
will ever compare to you
