Falling Leaves

Falling Leaves

A Poem by Abraxasbird

Golden brown, Autumn leaves that fall nimbly in Autumn's breeze

Resigned and indignant
Starlight glittered upon my shoulders
For all of a fading moment
The world grew larger

Small and insignificant
My heart in the dark
Sang aloud alone
Tired, torn,  and ajar

Vast innumerable parsecs of space
Seemed to hold their breath
While perennial and abject
My mind roamed, absent

Taking in large gulps of night air
I quieted the flutters of my soul
leering as the clouds slid across the sky
The inward laughter that affirmed
Yes, God,  you are rather sly

For her love was like. ..
Trying to catch a fallen leaf
Blowing in the wind
Eluding my grasp so nimbly
And though I caught that leaf
I knew no matter how strong I'd hold on
Eventually it, too, would be gone
