Image for the poem so long, long gone

so long, long gone

 
 
Memories  
meeting the weight  
of the night
 

  is where
           I used to find you.

 
 
Then,
it was shearing sleep to ribbons
pent up wrath  
that strangled my light  
and left darkness king
 
Struggling behind closed eyes  
sharp pops of lightning-like bursts  
were reminders  
of the very breadth of loss
 
Now,
it's cementing deep loneliness
permanently sealing  
 
that past
 
 
 
 
  exactly,
         where it should live.
