Untitled

Surely this separation is a particular madness
No one save human creatures would pair and then part – intentionally
Like a thousand lovers before me
I memorialize your features
and inhale the heady stuff of you
And like a thousand lovers I turn one more time and see you
You give me courage
Hysteria rising, you pull me back again and again
to the center of what was once myself.
