Partly Cloudy

How many billion skies have formed
to bring my eyes these very clouds
which take the shape of your soft face?

It's like the music you would move
throughout these searching thoughts and hands
poised silent on piano keys

intent to press forth melodies
composing your pure love for me:

I grasp the flow so

as heartache
