Letting Go of the Ashes

I hold the ashes in my hand

of the heart we burned together

I may have lit the flame

but you scuppered our forever

I have to open my hand, I need to let go

and let the ashes drift into the nether

But, I notice, though it was our shared heart

I am alone with the ashes in this stormy weather


I stand poised at the edge of the very cliff top

upon which we first teetered – and I let them drop.
