From Me

I know all
I fear too well.
Fear not girl
free your sail.
No longer is
a call to me
when you free
set out to sea.
I’ll send roses
to you to recall
where you were
before nightfall.
Not next to me
nor next to us
I let it go so go
turn into dust.
Hallowed feet
touch a ground
where I once
our love found.
But I burned
all the letters all
poetry to words
when a pen falls.
So don’t vacate
me to think broke
is my life oh no
that’s why a note.
Here’s a rose
my dear go ever
forward fly to
rest as a feather.
Scratched I have
black and white
a simple stem
thorns that bite.
So give me cause
give me pride
that builds up my
strength inside.
I’ve no hole here
needed be filled
in my soul a calm
is deep instilled.
