Seeing You Again
Seeing you again upset the ground under me
I almost fell when it rose and cracked
I caught each dripping word from you
Watering my drying memory
Loneliness that sat shivering but hidden
Burst out in hot pain
Walking away from you tore the skin from my body
My laughter was a bandage
To keep my heart from spilling out
And forming a sunset at my feet
