You Rose

I fell through the cracks
between your ribs and
got lost in the darkness
of your broken heart
until the rays of sunlight
came rushing through
the eaves of your perpetual
despair.
I was the rain that broke
the clouds, washing away
your rooted sense of loss.
I was the one who nurtured
you into a fruiting tree,
ripening far above my head.
You were the one who became
overripe, fruits dripping nectar
onto my waiting head,
drenching my soul in ambiguity,
as I realized that I would never
taste the fruits that I had tended.

You had reached the stars,
propelled by the force of
your own blind ambition,
and stirred the galaxies
trapped within the confines of my eyes
suspended by a pool of tears,
leaving me firmly planted
at ground zero, watching your
blazing trail emerge before me.
And as I attempted to lift myself free
of this terrestrial prison,
I could not help but realize that
it was I that had ignited you.
Now, I find myself blinded by your radiance,
reminiscing on the spark that
I once held in the palm of my hand.
You are gone and I am burned;
but, when does fire pause for ash?
