    dotssuch elegantly retreating strangersdots
    -------------------------------------------


    & you take love!

    & you press it to the skin of your chest

    till it's screwed up

    like that face that you make

    when you're thinking of them.

    & you hold it there

    like stone smoked in the water of oceans,

    bathed in the hot blood of your body,

    enveloped in masks

    of all the blank looks that you get

    when you try to explain what you're feeling,

    as if this love that you clutch

    could turn into some distantly remembered tumor

    throbbing purple across your rib cage

    just screaming, "don't fuck with me,

    i've seen your kind before

    & i'm not having any of it!"

    but it's not there,

    you have no badge of your misfortune

    save for the one that lingers

    ghostlike in the palm of your eyes,

    milky & fogged over

    like the meadows of your youth

    that, though they now seem

    like such elegantly retreating strangers,

    soothe you still to walk again

    the path that takes you towards

    another person's waiting arms...

      "you have no badge of your misfortune

    save for the one that lingers

    ghostlike in the palm of your eyes,"

    creative eloquence,

    and the close of this was exquisite for its tenderness and pain.

    the guy who knows her this well, who sees her this beautifully watching her given to a stranger.

    I wont favorite any of your stuff,

    it is golden of its own accord.

    but maybe when I find your best,

    that one time I'll let you know--

    Be kind, take a few minutes to review the hard work of others <3
    It means a lot to them, as it does to you.
