We steadily ascended
I faced the rocks with an open heart
Let the dirt seep into me,
Let it sink into my bones.
Left myself stranded amongst the trees.
Watched the sun set on me each night.
At last, I reached the peak.
I soaked in the beauty of the moment,
Savored the scenery
Savored the moments with you on my lips
With your Atlantic eyes locked into mine.
With your silk hands on my hips
With our beautiful minds intertwined
But the altitude was overbearing,
I forgot how to breathe
So you walked down with the curves of the earth,
Neglected my curves,
And left me there
Gasping for air
Gasping for you
Now, every time a mountain catches my eye, I think of you.
I think of you and I smile
Because maybe there will come a time
Where I can savor the beauty once more
Maybe we can climb again,
No matter how steep.
I know that your soul will eventually come back for mine.
Maybe everyone around me is right.
Maybe my ashes and the dirt within me
That you have created
Will build up so profoundly,
That I will become the very soil
That you will
Walk over once more
To leave your mark on me
Just to find another range to roam,
Just to cross another adventure
off of your twisted bucket list.
