I lean against stone

eyes closed

longing for what was

or what will be,

what was lost without

reason or rhyme.

I lean against stone

and in dreams,

see time.

    I feel a lot of loss and grieving in this poem. Was that your intention??

    I love stone, it says “I was here before you, and I’ll be here after you’ve gone”.
