9/12/12

wrap me up, and tuck me
away within your birdcaged
heart,

within your branches,
worn away by time and
love that came like

drips,

flooding your irises, so
full and your heart so
big,

so empty.

breathe your CO2 into
my fumbling lungs and
leave me here to combust

if that’s how it is,
to live without
you.
