What would you honestly say you loved about me
The moment my heart quit loving you;
All the infinities of stars casting tired looks on the world as they
Turned slowly away,
All the darkness overcoming lightness,
All our carelessly phrased conversations at dawn radiating backwards at
The back of your brain.
There’s not a lot I would tell you about me because
What you know is already so debilitating,
It could halt my footsteps forever.
Tell me I am the buoyancy of your being when
The endless negatives get heavier than
They ever were in our yesterdays.
