I cherished your words..

I cherished your words..

Delightful heights,

Rocked me senseless.

How far must I fall,

Cast naked and brave?


An uncertain messenger,

With fractured tongue.

I cherished your words,

Then choked on love.


This brook is your mistress,

Troubled and deep.

No ransom shall I pay,

For your earthly cause.


I shall wade in these waters,

Mourn to lost skies.

Your vanity was suspect,

So awkward in your skin.


coyright Es-tee Miller


“He realized that nothing belonged to her anymore and she belonged to everything.” …Markus Zusak, I am the Messenger
