My heart, the elephant
of my fate, broken and painful
stumbling through this journey,

without a herd,
without compassion,
without a lover,

I walk through hot coals laid for me
by you, singing my skin, you stare,
until I burn, you turn and go.

But I am the strength
I need in your aftermath
to rise again.

The kind of heat that turns you to dust
leaving souls weighted in bones
picked a part by crows
 
that heat is still better than a reality
wading through the living dead
watching as the radiant fled

Should a broken angel
find you,
offering what is left,
curl in to the broken pieces
of his wings.

Well, now,
if little by little you stop loving me
I shall stop loving you little by little.

If suddenly
you forget me
do not look for me,
for I shall have already forgotten you.

I am so envious of Pablo Nerudo for having written these two stanza’s before I got the chance… #hero

Should you have asked me to stay,
I would have.

Every empty apology
perforates my brain.

As I close my heart,
I consider the humanness

of my invisibility…

Fall again, nature’s efficiency satisfies me
with the consistency of sunsets I no longer watch
still I might like to see one more

the crisp air stinging my face
leaves crackling underfoot
air expanding in my lungs

feeling again, one last time
a regretful reeling of every mistake
every love misunderstood, every path not taken

the sensation of winter’s loss

In your brokenness
I found comfort.

a feeling I know so well,

there was no need to speak,
I knew what you had to say.

Because with every beginning,
there is always an ending.

but this time, yes, this time,
I have no more beginnings.
