poetry by j matthew waters


We watched the aquamarine sky
on a hot summer night
neither saying a word
though both screaming inside

I knew you were already gone
but we continued to hold hands
as if to say nothing will change
despite the obvious facts

You were always so good to me
though I never knew why
frequently sad but in a good way
I keep your wistful smile by my side

They never understood
the magic that we shared
and now that the sun is sinking low
we’re bound to rise together again
