Never Change

Enjoy this lovely, nostalgic feast of imagery from Chris Nelson. Visit his site ๐Ÿ™‚

He watched the shadows lengthen

Like an old manโ€™s coat

Tails torn by the wind,

Stained by love and loss,

Gone the Alaskan Summer

Heโ€™d wished would never change,

When high-hung Suns like mirrors

Kissed each waking hour,

His child-eyes blindly clinging

Translucent lids now closed

Still see the dreamed of constants

Beneath the milky dew,

And as the shadows embrace the night,

A loverโ€™s furtive tryst,

He feels the loss ripped from his skin

And draws his own coat tight.
