tasting you by magnus holmgren
the snow falls down,
each flake dancing closely with its neighbor,
creating a veil,
a curtain,
that my eyes can’t see through –
like the veil before your heart,
tightly covering it,
an iron curtain,
impossible to see through,
to get in.

i knock,
gently,
hug it,
kiss it,
but all i get,
is a metallic taste on my lips,
one i can’t shake,
one i don’t want to shake,
because –
at least it’s you,
i get to taste –
you.

if only you could see,
my own veil drop,
so long ago –
that the doors to my heart,
have been open for so long,
they no longer exist –
it’s wide open.

inside,
in that big green field,
beneath that giant oak,
sits only you,
wearing that smile you wore when we first met.

that is what i see,
everyday,
when my thoughts wander off,
to meet you.

now the snowflakes are dancing further apart,
the veil is lifting,
i can see clearer now,
beyond the horizon of my mind i see you –
waving,
smiling,
drifting further away –
until you are gone.

confused my thoughts scream,
a deafening echo in my mind,
desperately i look into my heart,
the green field is gone –
it’s all black –
scorched,
all that’s left of the oak –
is a pile of coal.

when my mind is once again silent,
i run my fingers through the coal,
slowly put them against my lips –
and i taste –
nothing.
