patterns scratched

patterns scratched
across my bone
runes & other lost
you held my hand

i still held sunlight
piercing thick clouds
warm on skin as it
all begins with ropes
& wrists at the edge
of the world, sea
crashing below, your
eyes painted kohl
bone between &
sharp colors dancing

no snow & sieidi
first flowers for our hair
the low songs sung

hand held & shadows
mirroring patterns
scratched across bone
