This time is death for me always.
I am amazed by its strength.
It strangles out the light in a world.
gathering up the remnants, dousing them in gasoline
Setting them aflame
Words that only yesterday poured from my lovers lips;
Penetrate my skin like chemical needles.
I break from the weight of it .
I am left no solid ground to walk on .forced to crawl through the airs of the mind
