i saw you first in shades
of black and gray with subtle splash
a color here and on your cheeks
but not your lips.
i could hardly stand to not
reach out and touch you
your still and silent
ghost of forgotten
so i did—
i reached out one arm
and paused when I saw
but still i didn't stop.
it was my choice.
i didn't stop, i still reached,
and when i touched my hand to yours
and i cried as i felt
your ashes slipping
through my fingers.
