distant rumblings

clouds are rumbling
at the corners of my eyes
rims brim
nebulous stirrings
at the bottom of my glass
pain crystals surface
again
how could you just
walk away
with the best years
of my life
so naturally
so righteously
how could you
leave me
with just a wall
to lean on
breeze billows my veil
not your fingers
but wind blown tresses
caress my face
the vacancy of night
is the silhouette
of my soul
in the numerousness
of the stars
i count my wounds
the twinkle, the jarring
the piercing
all compounded
only one truth prevails,
pervades,
you have gone

animal instincts

the animal approaches
dark, hungry, ferocious
in the still of the night
it approaches
and grabs at flesh
demanding, forcing,
torturing
there is no escape
it’s a contract
an agreement
to giveto perform
aching limbs
distraught mind
so what
body to body
an act fulfilled
an obligation met
