poem for a lost boy

And like the sun setting in the back of your eyes

I recede past our memory

I blur against the lines

I don’t love you anymore

Did you ever love anything?

This rhyming tangle of poems and prose

Never was enough

To satiate me

But you’re still scorching

And I can’t stop this crying

Putting my back to the ground

Move over me like a mountain

Slam your fist into a blackened chest

Pull out what you left inside

I want more than a sepia colored lie

Crawling back to me on hands and knees

A thousand years of trying is wearing on me

Open your mouth.

I’ll feed you fire

I’ll feed you the sea

I’ll drain your desire

While you bury me
