Poem: When the world fell apart

In a car, seduced by Clair de lune

On the radio.
Darkness ahead and around.
Lone on the road save the occasional
Early morning traveler.

It was the piano, the rise and fall,
That sweet lullaby that whispered
In my ear, “hold on to the moment,
For nothing will ever be the same.”

In my moments of darkness,
I go back to that car,
Wedged between blood and brothers
Loved and wanted but still

Brave enough to leave.
I go back so I can remember that
If it was once together
it must come back again.
