October 26, 2016

Twenty days I stayed silent. Not colors nor words of want escaped me.
twenty days, sore with grief and seduced by hope.
I left behind the place you existed
I scrubbed you from the floors and from my skin and from my mind
And at the end of twenty days of idle talk
And twenty nights of silent alarms,
And just when I believed i would starve to death
You showed all that lies beneath
Belied your toothsome, smiling exterior
Exposed greed, devoid of depth
Built only of convenience and greed
A two dimensional facade of desperation
 and pathetic, base validations
And the air rushed in
The light touched me again
And I realized how long
The sickening weight of you
Has suffocated me.

You're going to fall into the sea
And I will forget you
And I'll give myself all of the love
You held out of my reach
I'll feast upon it like a starved one does
Devour it.
My belly distended with excess
And a sanguine smile on my face
As the lovers of love line up
One by one
Just to kiss the taste of it from my lips
