Celebrating February on Easter (Dear Marius)

Poetry By: Ousma

A final installment to the Dear Marius series. This poem surprised me, because I thought I was done with the series a while ago. Inspired by last year's easter festivities that Mikey enjoyed before he returned home and died that very night. The anniversary of his death is approaching on April 23rd. I can't believe it's been a year without the greatest friend I ever had. It still seems so impossible that someone so wonderful is gone.
Also, this is the first poem I've written for the series since I got my first tattoo. It was nice to be able to mention that in this piece.

The sky is drawn up in pastels

And the wind carries a gentle chorus

Of chocolate coated childhood laughter

This colorful young day last year

You slipped from my grasp

We frolicked one last blissful time

Before you disappeared on a musical wind

It's been so long since our eyes last met

And I saw the symphony in your iris

A dancing green of fertile life

Such a layer of foggy dust

Has nestled on my candy-sweet memories

That I no longer ask why you left


Did you ever exist?

The perfection of a jovial imagined friend

Glowing with the beauty of Saturn's rings

Seems a definition that could fit you well

Yet a devoted layer of nostalgic ink

Is a physical memory nestled in my skin

This is my proof that you graced the Earth

With your heart full of infinite joyous song

The piano still plays for me on soft pastel days.
