a poem

Words a country removed from our shared language play in my ear. Your absence surrounds me. The air is humid from the emotions that trail behind you, slower in their egress.

Reasons you loved me are reasons I have loathed myself.

My silence. Obedience the mask on a rebel spirit. Trailing this new woman’s fingers across quietened lips.
