the air was gold, your lips found mine

the street was
nearly bleached out
by golden light
that didn’t seem
to come from the sun
but almost
emanate
from the air itself
we walked together
hand in hand
in this yellow
nimbus
talking about
the world around us
watching the people
laughing
as it all seemed
so silly
the rush
the angst
the frowns
that colored them
as gray smears
ashes floating
in the
sun’s sweet kiss

there was a
simplicity implicit
in the way
of your easy smile
that became
infectious

i wish my words
could have travelled
from dream lips
across the aether
to find your
sleeping ear
as the alarm
pulled me
from your side
one last promise
whispered
from my
half awake heart
to you
