in the cool green darkness

forest
there in a dark green room
with ivy for curtains
she dwelt
and listened to life happening
                 exploding, sobbing, sighing
around her
and in that cool sweetness
she found her respite and did
not grieve for the things
that she missed
instead
she withdrew into the
emerald of her eyes
and wandered in and
out of the forested
cathedrals arching over her
making her feel
all the more
          insignificant, small, invisible
but there are no tears
that fall this time
for the verdant lushness
of her dreams has
finally overtaken her
and carried her
to a lover strong and tall
and it is there that
she at last feels
that loving embrace
that eluded her
        forever
