​Saltwater rivulets
run clear
down the stone face
leaving an invisible
stain
that only the heart
can trace
deceptive
the tranquil pose
with each passing
second
of your absence
my equanimity erodes
I swim in the shallows
of my emotions
fight the current
traveling upstream
where love spawned
a lifetime ago
I began my journey
back to you
