This world of us I created
is on life support;
Doomed as it can be.
And I fear
that if I stop moving,
I’d run to you.
And I fear
That I’d not save us,
but smother us .

Or at least a trace of you;
A shadow of energy
that could only be yours.

This smell of coffee and ice cold water;
that sound of my name falling off your tongue;
the world that’s opened in those big brown eyes.

In this building of nurses insisting I press the bell and let them help, the panic attack plays through without witness.
A midnight delivery scares the birds out of the trees and into the sky; free and flying and soon they will be calm.
Another minute passes. Another moment closer to morning. Another cry down the hallway from a man who doesn’t know what morning is

An exercise in recognising strength
began with waking in a pool of sweat;
With a throat full of bile,
And a heart full of terror.
I killed four people last night.
I remember the tearing muscle
as I ripped the jaw off one;
The way I was hunted;
The way I was found;
My own jaw.
My own tendons.
And this morning-
I dressed and cooked and cleaned;
I brushed some dogs;
I wrote another thousand I’ll probably never publish.
I laughed a little.
My body count is long lost;
Maybe somewhere with my mind .

The smallest oversight on your part;
Your named illuminated before me
– only briefly –
An exasperated wheeze
of that determined muscle
deep in my chest.
Silly me thought I’d forgotten
how to miss you.

I don’t know how,
I don’t know why;
And when is fuzzy, too.
But I looked beneath my skin;
And staring back
was you .

In the steam I breathe
on the frosty leaves;
From the first morning light
through the wakeful nights;
Through my panic and fear
in this season of cheer;
There you aren’t .

I went to watch you work.
I sat and watched you look away.
The broken glass you left in my chest shifted a little;
Then settled back to gentle discomfort.
Just an echo of grief .
Just an image of you.
Just a shadow of me.
