and then you say to imagine the sky
in the night when the stars are bright
and the people are gone
and the places we’ve been
are places no more
only empty holes

and you say you don’t want to lose control but
I’m watching you in that night sky
you said to imagine
and I’m seeing you
really seeing you
and you say nothing but
continuous streams of Blank.

and you explain that things aren’t like they used to be
and I agree
because I know things are spiraling
Crashing
and doesn’t that hurt?
and you nod your head and look into the night sky that you said to imagine
and you breathe in

and you say how can it not hurt?
and I say
Blank.

this is amazing, its so vivid, you've done really well do get it so raw and emotional. i wish i could get that kind of immediacy in my poems. although, i would say, don't capitalise the blank!!
