clover

clover

by Mark Teo (Class 2023)

in this starless cyclone
silently awake I
hold together
branching through the sky
darkened with an ache once
held together
sandstorms in and out
breaking up the veins that
hold together
where it takes its roots
and rises from the thoughts we
held together
growing leaves of four
reminding us we used to
hold together
all the drones and downs
you were the part of me that
held together
but nowadays i know
these doubts and fears inside I
hold alone
