steals away my life and loves and leaves me with only the shadows


feels like waking up to an unrequited pillow

looks like her slender fingers slipping around a door handle

colors my red-wrought thoughts


is when my eyes are untouched but my hands ruled by tempest

tastes like a slow sip of curdled milk

smells like unwashed bodies shining with the sweat of remembering

is the picture of a ring framed with hope but lost in the dust


looks like the lemon tinge of a barely born bruise I forget making

feels like a monstrous balloon in my head feeding on my broken promises

sounds like the bottomless silence after she hits the floor


is like an apology wearing away at the chains in my heart
