Am I Still This Once

Am I Still This Once

Am I Still This Once

Because I touched a memory
Of arms promised me
Through nights of if-ever-were-ice
Control, each ours, and shared
Next to our beating flames
Like watchful fire we sit with
Warm underneath our reality
Instead of fears of dreams unreached
Could you remember the could-be's
More to fill our halls with this
Growing and growth with beautiful dirt
Smelling of the grown, like
Play in the mud of springs
Filling my thoughts of contemplation
You touch my arms and stay close
Your mind could be here with me
Travel that body here even closer
As small town world sings home
For nowhere else to wander
A mountain once and suberbia
Were visited by stagnation
Found movement out in the nowhere
For you to fill my dressing
A tree would be nice or a row
If only the prairie would part
Into the valley of river's words
Am I nomad enough
Do my roots grab on here

Again a possible settlement
As you've reminded me to think
Of maybe you would be near me
There, under Colorado skies
Because mountains were forgot
Out here at all the junctions
Of the veins that go wherever
Could it warm again this cold
That never leaves my toes
Would you hold them in your hands
With dirt dried from months of walking
Too many paths of if's, and agains
Blow warm breath upon me, them
From the heart you said would care
What worries still imprison you
As no one is there enough as
My mind meets yours from soul
What bars are not attached
As you see no escape to love
Can you see, you could breathe
And they would open windows
Can you remember when your spirit
Spooned me on clear nights of hope
He would enter my world
Until you lost the keys
So many ways, and you killed them
So many births could be instead
Will he sew your heart to me
So you can feel me again
