PULL THE SHADE AND DIE

i could feel it
and wondered
how i'd become
so ordinary
when all of what
i was
was yours
and wasn't that
enough?
and you said
no
and packed
while i watched
and i carried
your bag
to the car
and the night
was thick
as mud
and how I begged
it to swallow me
but goddamn
if the sun didn't rise
anyway
