One Night

October 15, 2009

I laid beside you.  I said:

“I need to lose a limb, or for someone close to me to die”.

How did I know that? The insight contained in that sentiment bewilders me now. It was cruel (I remember your own cruelty).

I could not be free from my devotion, it was a part of my own body.

As the wound festered, I held on. And one night in a swift amputation I lost it. I lost you.

Now I have a ghost pain I will never reach.
