a picture of us

I found a picture of us.

darling,
I see you again
splitting open
the effervescent sky,
that sleeps
on the turquoise sea,
I see us,
lay bare
skin on sand,
and oysters
stealing our pearls,
I rest
on the colour
of your eyes,
when everything else
is a shade
forgotten,
evening stirs
with promise and kisses
taste of your soul,
momentarily,
we are together,
and worlds converge,
nothing stays separate
as we hold close.

I can hear your heartbeat
then,
and hope
when this loneliness
passes and light
breaks through to me,
I am not the girl
in the picture,
and you are not
what you meant to me.
