Following A Society of Hounds I’ve been pairing poems with images a lot more:
You are eternal,
Forever in my mind.
I have chased you,
But never caught you.
Only in fantasies do my hands find your wings.
I fell upon my own ambitions,
compressed into a void.
You flew undaunted,
a burst of light that illuminated my dreams.
Everytime I give up,
Every moment I believe you lost to that blackness,
Every second I hold my breath,
The beauty of your light is that I never had to steal it,
you always gave it freely.
