Realisation

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
