poetry by j matthew waters

oh baby please don’t go

best friend boarding plane
guardian angel by her side
clenching one-way ticket to
isolation island

reminiscing in her bedroom
I strum her classical guitar
singing one sad song
after another
her voice whispering in my ear
melancholic yet joyous

flipping through pages of
paintings and photographs
I feel her hand in every
familiar image
stamped and delivered
deep inside regressive minds

february two thousand eighteen
