The Cake

25 January, 2014

The cake, as I take to my mouth, crumbles
The cake, you baked, yesterage
The cake, which rose, as we stood, touched, talked
The cake, which browned, as we relaxed in the bath
The cake making things, piled, waiting for a cleaning hand
The cake of life, we threw together, stired, set
The cake of feelings, now swirling, dark
The cake - a cocktail, a bar can never mix
The cake of longing, loss, sorrow, love
The cake, your cake, you gave, half, for my way
The cake, iced, with your sweetness
The cake, my last, symbol of you, of us
The cake, each crumb, a wantingness
The cake, each crumb, tears
