Sun Stain

Sun Stain

A Poem by YacobTihstea
"

We all fall in love once or twice, right?

"
I combed the earth for you, searching and searching for real skin.
I let the dirt, and the sediment, be my sense of direction.

I felt something alive in you.
It had to be close, but it couldn't have been anywhere near here.

I felt something alive in you.
Felt it breathing, and screaming, and pleading, and leaving.
I knew,
All about you,
I knew there was a special effect on the ground that you tread.
A mirage in the place of your face, of your head.
Brains and beauty and sharp edges.
All of the cracks are an entrance.

I know your name.

Remembering the day that my planet stood still for you,
It was all I could to catch myself falling head over heels.
You're a summer star, 
I wouldn't give the time of day to just any constellation,
Maybe take a vacation to the end of the sky,
Just you and I.

Breeze, palm trees, sand between your toes.
Is there any good place for hammock on the edge of existence?

Truly moving, profoundly insightful look at love and existence... There is a journey, an awakening, a beauty beyond description. What a wondrous, vividly painted write.
