Zephyr

by Poetry

it would be nice      I think it would be nice
to pretend that all this pain      is purely for you
romantic in our fucked up way      how fucked we
have always been      it comes now to romance
and something like love      truth is I was hurting & hurting myself
long before you came along      hurting myself even
while you’ve been in me      I don’t think you’ve felt it
I hope you haven’t felt it      I’m sorry if you have
truth is I’ll keep on      hurting
when you finally extricate yourself      naked and dripping
what little there is left of me      what shackles spider web tendons
heavy bone links      & this fat flesh
must appear to the wind      as you are
the wind
