~notes on explaining the ache

i.
the only cure for mourning
is night
ii.
I prefer shadows

flowering in my veins
iii.
as the noise fades
the silence grows louder
iv.
I follow your voice through the mirror

I write you full of my darkness
v.
my skin has worn thin
vi.
feel an ache in the breathing
after the lung’s last sigh
vii.
I float in the absence
of your gravity

until the space becomes
you
viii.
sshhh…listen to the echo
from the hollow of my throat

calling your name
ix.
what is the acceptable time for a heart
to grieve?
x. someday, I will turn to rain
xi.
my footprints are words left
behind that no one will read
xii.
the pause
& then
the afterwards
xiii.
the alchemy of us dissolves
like the moon
xiv.
the only real sound
must come from
the soul
xv.
everywhere

everywhere, a poem
