As I Lay Here- Anahita Ebrahimi

By Anahita Ebrahimi

I remember the raindrops trickling

Down your sunburnt cheeks

Your arms wrapped around me for a second too long

High hopes and consciences wavering

Words of encouragement

From you and the man with the polished boots

My fear hushed by your blind kisses

Yet I chose not to cherish those moments

Because cherishing and goodbyes come hand in hand

As I lay here

A melody of memories dances around the pain

Your hands in mine

Purple blooms of jacaranda dancing at our feet

The sweet summer air singing us to sleep no more

Blind faith and the glazing of greed to thank for

And as the angels lead the way I know my paradise is what our life was
