Between the way you gripped my waist,
and the things your smoky voice trailed into my ear,
You were damn near perfect.
I wore sunglasses for four months after what those hands did to me.
But I miss them as though they were my own.

It became life and death.
So I drank.
And for the first time in three weeks

Your lips met mine with all the subtlety of the big bang;
And your hands roamed as though the curves of my body
were the long road home.
Your eyes searched mine like a blind man’s first sight;
A mystery before you, seeing everything and nothing.

I’ll hang myself by silk
from the rafters of my mind,
and sway with the wind,
like a calm and restful tide

at the life that’s come to pass.
They’ll bury me in winter
on a sunny, icy day;
They’ll say I was so happy,
then forget, and walk away.
