Ashes

Then let me be 
Within the misshapen
Pieces jumbled
Within these insufficient 
Memories 
A ghost, a shadow
Of once was and could have been

Would it wreck you
To know
Would it wreck me
To know
All that comes together
Misshapen and all
May be tears of laughter 
And soul shaking despair
And new found fears 
From the loss of all those years
And to the years left to be
a voyeur to your life 

At our most beautiful
We loved

A forever muse
Strokes of pen and paint
Found dripping
With that which
Was and is
Us…
Broken bug-like smear
Unrecognizable
And regretted 
Cannot be undone
Could haves, would haves, should haves,
Must be,
Promptly and decisively 
Incinerated 
And sprinkled at our feet.
