Bottomless

Zamboni.SilouetteI

Board the train you said

crescent moon smile

covering your face.

I stepped into ethereal darkness

only to discover no footing.

I floated through your mind

over snowy fields where dreams

ran like beasts in pursuit of time.

Your feather light hands guided me

through a sugar bowl of love.

I quaked at the horizon before me,

empty and vacant, burned like Venus.

You smiled teeth of sadness,

“You have traveled far

heaven is here for you and I.”

Tears fell into the nothingness.

The well of life has no bottom.
