Unravelling and weaving, sometimes simultaneously

Bread Crumbs

I am reading your old emails
flipping back the years
to when we met

There were secrets there
I paid no attention to
at the time

You divulged bits of yourself
pinching crumbs from the loaf
scattering them
for me to follow to you

The birds beat me to some of them

Still, I fell in love with you
not remembering those pieces
I scramble to find and savor now
while I am starved for you

Lost in the deep woods
I feel along the path
with loamy fingers
searching for more bread
one last taste of you
then another

Not really caring
if I find my way home
unless home is somewhere
you have gone

What I wouldn’t give
for another random missive
a 143 text
a voice mail telling me
you’re okay where you are
but you never really left
