Ten Months

Ten months
Pass slowly

Like water drops in slow motion

We try to mend
This relationship

But can’t get past

Your wanting to be free

And my wanting to be loved

Weeks of nothing
Followed by days of

Consuming passion


Followed by

Memories of pain
Hazily clear

Dulled sharpness

What is a slap
But a hard kiss?

A chokehold

Nothing more than a hug

That takes my breath away

And yet
Each punch at the wall

Is a blow to my heart

And like glue to glass

Cannot be made whole again

The drop finally falls
Explodes into nothing

And is no more
