spirit love

I have
kept you,
alive
and close,
brought you
with me,
even as you
dissipate,
I have carried
your slender frame,
thought by
thought,
like an aura
around my being,
I remain wrapped
in you,
like smoke you rise
vaporous and wispy
without any roots,
I branch
holding you close,
tightly
against my heart,
I stretch as
you sway in the light
breeze,
I can’t let you go,

but, strung to you
I do leave 
towns and people,
strangers all,

you are
my home

So, I let you
take me
away
like this.
