How wonderful to compose a video today with my friend and fellow poet Maxima!
Please enjoy this video that we have put together. It features my newest poem If We Go Back. As I read the poem, Maxima plays piano. We both contribute the photos you see during the video.
I hope you enjoy it!
Wishing you love, with miles of poetic hope. ~christyb
If We Go Back
Shudder and stare,
The ability to swim in no longer there-
I sit in the corner alone and
Ponder the time we held time within
Our intertwined fingers.
You are here in memory yet
Miles away in the shadows, as
Your smile got lost in the trashcan
When I threw out the wilted roses.
You wore your dreams in your pocket,
While I woke up in a bed full of goals-
Today I sit in the corner alone,
Yet I am warmer than I ever was with you.
