A Brief Evolution

Tonight the sorrow came,
Forgotten waves of sadness
Lapping at the back of my mind,

The sweet, joyous songs
Of childhood
All haunted and curdled,

The whispers of lovers
Like ships leaving ports,

Never returning,

Beautiful memories
Swimming off

Into the sky.

I closed my eyes
And let a single tear

fall,

I pulled on my heart
And sat back,

I looked down
And then swallowed,

Lost in the carpet,

Embarrassed
And sombre.

Resolved.
