A Poem by Ruminating Archaeologist

today, I took your hand on the playground monkey bars as we sat above them all.


today, I

took your hand on the

playground monkey bars

as we sat above them all.


"Look around," I told you, "Look at the view."

instead you stared into the sky

and as the night darkened, I

wanted to find the universe in your eyes.


In this moment, I struggle to know

who I am, what you think of me

In this moment, I struggle to understand

what lies beyond and what lies below.


today, I

took your hand but

tomorrow, you take my heart.

Author's Note

Ruminating Archaeologist
wrote this last week, when supposed to be writing stuff for English. go figure.
after tweaking it some, I like it more.

Artemis was a goddess of the hunt, wilderness, and virginity in Greek mythology.
I'm not really sure what I wrote this for, but in my mind it makes me think of innocence, my playground years, and things I don't understand. A sort of vastness to everything. Losing things without ever understanding why.
