Orpheus and Eurydice

Walking backwards
going forwards
keeping sight of you

The one I lost
and briefly found
through darkness and into

Though life goes on
death lingers still
as black turns into blue

The sky invites
the earth below
to swallow grief anew

I hate it now
this love I have
but know it to be true
