sunset stains

I bear the weight of words
that linger
hellos and goodbyes
bittersweet breaths
surrendered sighs
that fill the spaces
that eventually become too vast
and too cold
to return to
where eyes will never meet
and where souls will never touch
the skies we paint
in silent shades of indigo
and subtle strokes of raw sienna
even the sun bleeds
and stains the horizon
with mourned memories
of last kisses
blown wishes
and promises
too painful
to keep
