i have lost the sway in my hips as time has beat me deeper
into the flagstones
and you have not quite left the past behind, and i
(i heard she still wears your hair the same way, i heard she still always has that
singular
lock
dangling past her shoulder to scrape her body to claim what is no longer mine)

and oh, darling, for so long i have loved myself alone in the dark behind my eyes and oh darling for so long for so

so let go, let go, let yourself fall, let me hold you once-
please, let yourself
i have fallen
so long ago
