Poetry: “Float”

by Eunice Barbara Novio

FLOAT

I am looking at the blue sky
trying to remember the hues
when light reflected on your iris,
if those were blue or deep green,
like the Aegean and Dover.

We sat down one day,
in a corner coffee shop,
finding words to say, to appease
ourselves that the oceans never separate
us,

we would let our passion flow,
floating, across the waters,
neither reaching the shore,
nor finding the edge

instead,
it is only the black firmament,
once filled to the brim
now empty.
