remnants

you linger
like an imprint
residing deep inside of me

invisible roots
that have wound around
the inside of my guts
and layered with twisted knots
that I cannot cut
from my soul

your fragments play
to the ghosts in my memory
like a grand matador…
my love was the bull that
you slaughtered

and even though
it feels
like I’m swallowing thorns

I still feel you

your presence is a rage
flowing through my veins
setting me on fire
with every pounding
of my heart

you climbed inside of me
the first second I knew you
and even though you’re gone
you will forever scrape
and claw under my skin

I don’t know how
to remove the pieces of you
that remain

remnants
