Why would I do
without you,
my sweet companion…
my lover……
my friend?

Where would I be….
without the me
I see
in you;
You,
the mirror
in which I
cannot
pretend.

Why would I run
into the sun-
sparkling sea…
still in my shoes…
kicking diamonds into the air       
for the sky to wear
or the wind to cast
like glass
confetti…
and lose?


why would I stand
with open hand
in midnights thrall
waiting for the stars
to fall;
without you there
the wish
to share?

Why would I do….
without
you?
