i leave it forever

a thousand restless days have passed
or maybe not quite

the bottom of my boots are worn thin
like skinny sandals

a path discovered, well-tread,
and wrapped in memories never made

beauty continues to hold its chin up
in the gray matter

the world of black and white
folds over on its side

i leave it forever
at the foot of that hospital bed
