tagErotic Poetrymy heart in my hand

my heart in my hand


I pull my life apart
Inch by inch by inch
Every morning
Every evening
Every time I think
Of you

I start slowly
As I wish we had
Like you sometimes did
Though mostly
You were a fan
Of the quick hard rush
Get this thing over
So you could move on
To the your next turn
See I remember you

I leave small pieces of me
Discarded in tissue
Held in amber
Flushed down the toilet
Bits that I’m not using
Nor anytime soon
What with the way
My slow heart beats
I beat it every day
To try and let go
But your memory
Holds me fast
So its you there
In those hidden places
I touch in my solitude
Ah well
Ah me
Oh my
Nothing’s ever easy is it
The future falls like rain
Coming down around my ears
In soft hushing sounds
While I hope for clearer skies
