Was I Ever?... At All?

Bagby Hot Springs

I climbed sleepless up the mountain
to the place my heart once fell
The path was cold and icy
and the night was too dark to see
A river roared below the icy bridge
below the gangplank to my heart's last sighting
I imagined how it would feel to slip off
and fall into my sorrow
I held the rail tightly

I trampled the dead hearts of former lovers
the ones that mattered not
They were everywhere on the mountain
Have they no place else to sleep?

I was naked when I saw her
glistening under the stars
Her long hair went on forever
and her ass was as perfect as his words
I dared not try to imagine
that I had experienced
flesh so fair

I slipped naked into the tub
and peered off into the darkness
The water was so hot I wanted to escape it
the air was so cold I wanted to escape it
my soul was so numb I couldn't feel it
my eyes could not cry
so instead
they
gently
closed

Snow fell from the sky
I settled into dreamtime
I drifted everywhere around the mountain
in search of my fallen heart
Of course I could not find it
Was it ever there at all?
Was it ever in his heart at all?
Was i ever?
at
all?

With nothing left to do
I listened to the muffled chatter
of the folks up on the mountain
I granted myself absolution
and
enjoyed
a
nice
hot
soak
