Crystals

Crystals

I was stupid to trust a swine once more
My heart and mind could never agree or decide
So you did for me

I saw it coming

I knew it was near, but ’tis an odd shape it came in

Formless, unbounded, the fog rolled in
I look up at the clouds sinking lower
And knew that above them
There you were

Moist air aerosol crept into every pore
My mouth dried in the cooling air
Frozen into place were my mind and my veins
The mist rolled and the clouds descended

Walking on the grass to reach a destination
On the frosted dew that crunched
Under my feet with every step
My shoes grew wetter by the step

The rhythm in ice unfrozen
Friction collapsing crystals in bone
It’s growing harder to see
Through this thick fog surrounding

It is comforting
Every step fighting frost
Heat generated and dissipated

Winter clothes on as I take more steps
Towards the ever-declining air
Hydrated bronchi were never
So beautiful

I can only see my feet
And the ground just below
As I walk through the
Field that I know of

All fades
Grass remains
Every step
Nearing something

Then a wind
Compounding the chill
Through my jackets
Reaching for bone

The wind
Curtains away the fog
Revealing to me
The field I knew

Undercast overhead
Trees on all horizons
Walking towards something
Something I knew

The fog was gone
Yet the air was crisp

It
Stayed

Behind and left with it
Dewdrops from thin air
Floating in suspended animation
