su amada

 

today doesn't quite fit  
 it's fragile and awkward  
   and might just break  
 with the weight of her heart  
bearing down on its very existence  
 
 
 soon the hours will be gone  
 he left before they were over  
to be with stars and galaxies  
forever dreaming, boneless and blind  
 forgeting to miss her  
 
 
May: the month that takes  
jaws wide and teeth sharp  
holding pain and tears in its belly  
 swallowing light and life  
with a rib-cage full of ghosts  
 
 
when this time slips from her skin  
she will find her way back  
away from the hovering dusk, his silence  
 
she will no longer drown  
in the loss of his breathing
