"Like an angel with two broken wings. Reach for the sky again. Like the devil, meant for better things. I will find my place on high"

I cannot take in enough
of the essence
of you
who I love
When I leave
I will have to
erase to myself
and make
That emty space
Where I put it all
Too much
To hold in a single brain
Shared with the knowlege
Of absence
Mixes with its sharp tinge
And pull
To make a force
Within a body
Becomes a shell
When dragged in a direction
The one which I walk

It holds
In a suspension
Can I keep it
In that frozen state?
It must be fed
Lest it dies
And like a child
And in me
Seems to be all me
And apprehends
All it cannot get
From outside
But there,
Can I freeze it?
I keep it its state
I only hope
It comes
And thaws
When at last
I call it out
Then I will wait
Frozen myself
For the drops to run out
