Glass Memories, Trevaughn Giff

Tangled up in sheets
Just like the roots of trees
Sunk below the surface to a
World full of rodents, bugs and mud
We found ourselves happy there.
Our roots reaching out
Like your hand in my mine,
Cradled safely among the weeds
Water like air
The warmth of your body soothes me
But I can feel you wither and fade
Roots once intertwined
Loosen and contract
You’re rotting from the inside out
Infected with decay
Uprooted and gone
I thought you would stay
I love you even though now I know
You were dying to get away.
