Everything I Ever Said



What I said to you once I will say again, and always.

Is that enough?

Others won't, haven't, have gone silent, or say other things
that make you bleed, or freeze almost solid.
I still believe everything I ever said,
still feel it's true, so what else would I say?

Everything is true all at once,
the way all the photos in the album are you,
and that's a lot of truth to cope with.

Is that enough, though?

I'm standing on a weathered wooden piling
looking down at the slow cloudy sea.
The pier is gone.  I rotate in slow circles.

Is that water, or reflected sky?
