Moving On

Toes in the doorway
Painted red
Bright sunlight
Etch white patterns in your eyes
Force tears that make you
forget the boy
who didn’t kiss
goodnight. Down.
The plants outside
are wilted. Forgotten.
Step outside
and wiggle your toes in the
dirt. Dry dirt.
The empty room
floats away behind.
The door closes.
Water the forgotten flowers.
Step backwards into the
sunlight to tear stained
eyes- for a moment.
Moving forward
into the empty sky.
