This is the afterthought
of argyle patterns in our hearts
Past begins
fraying your ends

Winters pass some of these
the scent of fallen leaves in spring
so it was
with you I’ll cover this mud

A well routed trudge

That day my sense ran off
while walking backwards through
my thoughts
Loaded guns
Darkness undone

And dreams of symmetry
what nature couldn’t be
in time to itself
Reflect and repel

A mirror to the well

But couldn’t see
what was outside measured
equally as deep
Could it be
I was looking for something
that wasn’t me

This is the afterthought
