You left behind only smoke and unapologies in the prickly darkness.
Yearning for something you took, I followed you
out into the darkness of night’s high noon.
My lips, like red rose petals, blew away in the wind
and I could think of nothing to say. No reason to stay.
You arched your back in the stillness, and I counted regrets on the knobs of your spine.
The cicadas played a love song and we laughed at the irony
I tried to make you a peanut butter sandwich.
I bit the crumbs hard to keep from crying.
You took the sandwich and left behind only smears of jelly. Red like blood.

Every image you paint with your words are alive to me. I see, taste, hear, smell every thing you detail. Suddenly, I'm in the mood for a PB&J sandwhich.
