Vessel

I wanted to be rid of her,

the vessel.

telling her to go sleep 

leave me be

the way she burns,

the way she grabs for me.

yearning to be felt, to be touched 

I tried to wrap her in the sheets 

but she turns them black,

burning still.

no pain, no anything. 

Accidentally numb. 

I want to be rid of her 

but she loves me too much 

I can’t Rid her 

for the vessel is me.
