a night sky







A shuddering breath parts my lips
loneliness belies the truth
a snake coiling over my belly
and past my unadorned hips


The darkness casts a shadow
renouncing light imposingly
I reach for an apparition
A phantom specter no longer here


Peering around this tidal wave
a perilous sea of obsidian
memories of what we were once
tendrils of smoke my only friend


prisms of pain fall from my eyes
from behind my starless gaze
striated and notched this heart
repeats a simple phrase


“I need you” it whispers
with no reply I come undone
then settle into solitude
with bitter realisation
