Zig Zag

Through alleys of avoidance
streets shiny with rain
footsteps ever closer
can't allow the catch

Every step disconnects
unleashes the dog
unbridles the mare
unclips the wings

The mind undoes 
such thoughts of absence
memories spill their stories
to the dark

A face forgotten reflected
in a puddle time distorted
with confusion as to how
it rips away

hearts in pieces
