merope ~ mark cobley



i will not visit

you
or your memory
over and over

blue white and dove grey
are the colours of cloud
breath on a cold morning
reflected
halo of the eye

my face never to be
touched by
fingerprint whorl
wind caught
spun
but from
here

to be gone
is not darkness
or blindness

or the treacherous sea ink
rising and falling

violet
fade light
thin away
forever
in

the hurt is within

wave
blacken
cover eyes
in shame
a spiral

cheat death wise Sisyphus

my sisters
sailors
lover

you will know me


no more.



From dove flock a work in progress
