Can you hear me

Seeping into silence
I was
a melted chocolate bar
this morning
tired
and beyond trying

Pouring coffee
into last night’s cup
rinsed out
tasting an echo
of red wine from the rim

Was life unliveable
was it bereft of hope
sitting each day before
shelves of books
talking to them
as friends

When I look back
too often
like tonight
I sort through photos, and
I realize what I needed
a soft place to land
