The Cherry Tree

August 22, 2013

Inside of me inside of you

Blue.The ocean of your eyes

The windows to your Soul

Inside of me, Inside of you

Under the moon

Next to the cherry tree

Which bore the fruit

You gave to me

The warm air

Blankets me

Like I blanket you

And the green smells so sweet

As it’s delicately cool

Love. Peace. Freedom. One.

One morning. That morning


Years later

It came. Time.

We went



Black. The loss in your eyes. Gone

is the gold

Gone is the light

And in the darkness they fell

The soldiers are dead

It got you

It got in your head

Inside of me, inside of you

Next to the cherry tree

Where I imagine you

Blue were your eyes


Now but a distant memory
