I sought your heart in the darkness
and
finding nothing
was content with
your lips, your hands
hushed phone calls in the young hours of morning.

You turned from friend to lover to
well, what are we now?

Try to keep pace
as I watch the scars form.
They spread across your heart like
lightning
white and deep and cracking.

I was the thunder
but you could always argue
who was first to fall.
