She had to leave suddenly

Though she didn’t move at all

Leaving me messily

Echoes of light bouncing off my eyes
Blinding my senses

Deceiving me tenderly

A shadow grows within me
Poking out of gaping wounds
She gave to me

Murdering me faithfully

Because love is blind
It’s supposed to be, anyway
I’m certainly stumbling in the dark
Relying on my own kinesthetic awareness

Burying me lovingly
