Piano girl

Dark and hollow,

She presses keys

Up and down to fill the spaces

between the pauses

Reverb fills her lungs

and she gasps,

A second to jump outside of the skin

choking her in slow-motion,

And another

To fix her shadow

permanently beside her

I was only trying

to let you


The trail I dropped behind


Nuts and seeds

to nourish you

On your journey over here

But she’s all that I got

Treble clefts and staccato notes

tighten around my neck

To numb the absence of you

I come to,

To find my fingers laces around her knuckles,

My lips to her ears, breathing breaths

to collect and amass, so as to sink below

so she could rise up

And so I could

continue disappearing
