INHALE

Breathing/Turning

What would it take to forget your name?

 What would it mean to forget your name?

 

 

I sought to avoid

bitter, battles,

I baited into existence.

Triggered, by ease

of underlying

angst, between us.

 

 

I feel,

fragile,

proud,

unproven.

 

 

where can I find you once more?

 

 

 

 

 

 

Was I alone?

Am I alone?

 

remembering your tone,

through the circumstances of my mother,

who never leaves.

never leaves.

And you,

who never retreat.

 

If I could escape distraction,

Humiliating myself fraction by fraction

as the earthen stone

by which I get my name,

draws out the inherent shame,

static love!

keep us calm;

whilst a dawn

descends,

my moth-eaten shirts,

tethered to my frame,

as I attend to our site

in haste
