Blazing streaks stretch
On diamond black skies
With pops and sizzles
As an old year ties.

Still, bitter frustrations remain
Within a soul so scarred—
Though the mind stays sane,
Never will the heart be the same.

Eyes shining through the light
So lovely
And yet,
     empty,
     aching,
     …tiresome.
Reds, yellows, and blues.
Purples, oranges, and greens.
Lights that immense the spirit
Inspiring whole-hearted bliss.

Scars fade,
Reflections change,
But woes linger.
This
Held in
That
Sanity be preserved,
Destruction will crumble.

Now I hold recollections
Of almost having you,
     when strong I was,
     when fortune smiled down.
Through the empty space
You kiss,
That the newborn
Nurtures me anew;
That moving forward
Never has to feel

…forlorn.

Farewell.

Dedicated to all that I lost this year—relatives, friends, pets, and aspirations.
