It Lasts Longer

 

An image of you
Caught unaware
In profile
Backlit
In shades of indigo
Or melancholy blue
A complementary color
To your silver hair
And the tiny cross
In your left ear
Has captured thoughts
Best directed elsewhere
And brought them to this blank page
Now filled up with
Everything I want to say
But haven’t yet.
