Once You’re Gone

for someone I love


Life is a wonderful

trap you fail to acknowledge

until you break it off.


Never again will you see

such troubled waves,

days haunted by midnight’s

killer stare.


You will not dare to question

why the world extends

its wings, like a naive eagle

circling America

while the universe laughs,

chokes, laughs again.


Imagine the painstaking,

worth-its-while peace

that would shoot up,

out of the sky

if we simply loved–

if you just kept on walking.
