Literary Landscape

don’t go
the sky is rainbow
a confetti world
beyond the clouds
there is a skiff
that can take us
oars to steer us
flicker of light
wanderlust speed
I’ve needed you
but I must be only 
a faint misty memory
passing through you
stay and we
can lie together 
as the hull takes on water
we can put eyes
to heaven, dream
a floaty future
in each other’s arms
flecked with paper
and hope
because if you leave
I collapse
I promise to hold on
rescue you from drowning
I’ll do better this time
I’ve learned over the years
how to love
it’s almost the same
as learning how to survive.
