searching my memory
for how you felt under
my fingers
in that moment
I discovered love

is like trying to sip the same cup
of river water
twice
it never comes back to you
nor is it good for you

for the words
I blessed you with
in that moment
I gleaned heartache

is like hunting for a
single thread of saffron
after a thousand
have been tilled
into dust
