Left

I woke up
with a poem inside me
Taking its place
In the space you abandoned

The unreached light
Between my ribs,
A tiny cave that went 
Unoccupied for so long
I had forgotten it was ever there.

But you sniffed it out;
You found it,
And curled your heart,

peacefully,

next to mine.

Pumping together simultaneously,
Making our bodies thrum
Heightening our senses
And our limits.

We were swept away for a while
Knowing it made no sense.
Then your affection
turned gray and shriveled.
Cleaving off,
ran off,
To die on its own

My heart lamented
Cried out,
A swan song for a dead love.

However,

Space was made
Where my heart could thrive,
Crimson and Azul.
I filled that spot up
On my own.

I’d rather have
this poem than you,
And I won’t forget it this time.

Why don't you come to my house? Why don't you drag me right out? Past all the shit that I said, I'm saying Why don't you cut up my mouth? And I don't care what you use Just don't ask me to choose I forced a field to allow you That's not so easy to do I said, I said what I said I want you to help me (Oh) Surrender, rend it, it's yours Out in the open We're wide open (Oh) Surrender, rend it, it's yours Locked in a body In love with the process of... Surrender, rend it, it's yours Out in the open We're wide open Night light comes into my room Some shade of bruise-colored blue Moves through my mind like a chemical Imbalance on schedule Rend It by Fugazi
