Theme: Absence Share This Page
Arsenic

  What can I say to a heart
that your absence corrodes,
to question the core of my existence
to make me gasp for breath,
knowing I have to live in your choice,
to exist so, without questioning 'why'...

As if to sustain myself in this profound pain
that I cast on myself, maybe fate,
the same pulled us apart
though my fate is your slave,
I hide in its shadow
in shame of being vulnerable to you,
to look twice at my reflection
to realize it's mine,
to curb the desire to stop breathing...

I call out your name,
a name that gives me wings
to ascend into the brilliant blue,
amongst the morning sun lit clouds
where I write your name,
with a feather of my dream, my pen,
the cloud, my canvas...

I falter from reality to love you,
I accept your gift of hatred
for it comes from your heart,
a place beyond reach or rights
where even my God asks to enter,
where I stand behind him far away
a mere mortal entombed by my own love for you...
