Poetry by m.dale
Delicate in Nature
We must care deeply for those that care deeply.
Without them, our oceans would be streams and our canyons, mere cracks.
I see you.
I see the shadows that plague you.
I see the darkness that blinds you.
I see the shallow waters that drown you.
I see in you everything I ignore in myself.
Withdrawal from you is like removing all the blood from my own veins.
It has left my heart an empty chamber.
My tears, they aren’t collecting for you.
They drop for everything I didn’t pursue.
