A Poem by Emer Davis


Two pools
Of light
In pastel shades.

A hint
Of yesterday's dream
Falling onto her face.

Warm and salted
The seeds of mistrust
Seeping into her skin,
White petals
Tangled in her hair.

He unraveled
The cord around her waist,
Snapshots of unbroken ties
Binding them together.

She waits in the shadow of dawn
For him to return.
