Looking Back and Looking Forward

Satin Moths

Today, I’m looking back

and I’m also looking forward

with a melancholy mind

that wants to drag behind

all the memories that cling

like chitin on the wings

of satin moths that fly

toward the light as I

who stumbles in the dark.

Without you here today,

all I can do is pray

to see your face once more;

inhaling your warm skin

as we embrace again,

my love.
