revolving doors ~inspired by Perri Forrest

My sis *sister in scribe/sister in spirit* is penning a book to be released soon. "Revolving Doors" is the prequel to her short, "Rendezvous". this poem is inspired by her sweet story.

i tried to forget you
in foreign arms
and scripted kisses
i tried
to 'x' out your impression
with penciled happiness
weakly scribbled over
pen-stained love
i sought comfort
in purpose
and drive
and still my eyes
were not dried
in every move away
i drew closer to closure
closer to the thing
i chased like butterflies
against zephyrs of denial...
i was searching for redemption
and what i found...
was solely searchable you
hidden in muffled breaths
found in limbo
upon your lips
i found you...
in suppressed memories
resurfaced from corked springs
of past summers...
and now,
i am redeemed
as i come full circle
spun through a revolving door
bringing me home you
