Full of thoughts of you-
that second I felt my ribcage expanding
that second I couldn’t contain all of you in me
Your darkness surrounded me,
preyed on me,
fed on me.
Savored every last drop
you left me dehydrated.
Nothing but a carcass, a carcass to be probed.
And you came back,
fiercly demanding your red carpet.
Strolling across my ashes,
you yelled at me for crumbling, for decomposing.
I bowed my head.
The universe threw its head back and laughed.
And angel, how I miss that smile.
