Desire, Desperation and Void.

Whilst I sit
Reminiscing
Grieving
Regretting,
Just as I did that night
Five months ago
Alone
At this fruitless desk-
Desperately yearning floorboards to creek your footsteps,
As they did that very morning
As you moved to gather possessions
Creating a quiet procession
Of uncomfortable mourning
That still remains
Still haunts
That proved to be my funeral
With each box; a casket
With a part of me…inside
There’s a girl upstairs;
Sleeping upon the bed that
Once cradled
US
Tangled within sheets that
Still embrace your scent

We’ve, (Her and me, have) spent this sunless day, this
Cold, blue, mid-Autumn Saturday
Like You and i loved to do;
Bodies introducing flesh,
Eyes devouring faces,
Fingers, tracing spaces,
Discovering
Creative
Places

Her hair, last I looked;
Was strewn across my hemorrhaging pillow
Just as yours did, once upon a long fucko time ago

For a moment in the infantile-darkness of this dying day;
I roused myself
To believe
It
WAS
You…

It wasn’t.

Weren’t.

Ain’t.

A stronger,
Less-pathetic man would
Set aside this;
Wistfulness
Scale
Those lonely stairs,
Climb into that
Empty
Bed
And wake her like
You used to; me with
Fingers through hair with

Your

Beautiful

Smile

That

Hypnotizing

Stare, would

Grind his waist
Into hers
Trying
Again
To pulverize
Haunting
Memory
Would make her moan so loud
That YOU could hear her clearly across this hollow city

That
Beautiful,
Innocent
Soul upstairs
Is oblivious to what I’m going through,
Naive to voices of desire sheathed in desperation of you,
Ignorant of my unwillingness to
Let go,
To
Finally
Let go,
To let her in, to
Open up to her, to
Spred her open, to
Introduce her to parts of
Herself shes never met, to
Take her places shes never been, to
Fill her heart, mind and soul with same
Happiness
Promise
Warmth
Security
Comfort
Affection and

Love

That
You
Once
Gave me
That
You

Once

Gave

Me

Desire, Desperation and Void.
