Untitled 69

Untitled 69

The bed you left
was more than just an expression
A sweet-toothed longing
for simpler weather

As I pulled spadefuls
of dirt from the ground
you calmly
filled them back in behind me
trying to steady my ground
but I am a mutt
with allegiance to too many histories
and the bone was I was trying to bury
was love
so I could remember where it was
when I lost it
but I dug so deep
it was lost in the hollow earth
you were filling in

And it became easier for you
to bury me with it

You were tossing dirt
in such a hurry
so you could leave
without hurting your conscience

Almost like it was time to be over
instead of the infinite togetherness
we had been searching for
in each others eyes

But I guess I was just a jagged drop
off a rocky cliff for you
even when I tried to heal your lame and broken
limbs like an unlicensed doctor
in this back water hick town
where we were meant to find each other

Two excitements
discovering each other
where there was nothing else
to discover but us

So I turned the other cheek
so many times as you searched me
to find something wrong with you
and I let you think
you were perfect
as I yielded to the weight
of minor faults

Little cracks that never made it
to the foundation

The little changes I was afraid to ask you
to make because I thought I might lose the real you

And I never asked for more
which puzzled you
because all you ever asked me for
was more

All I needed was night
you beside me in our bed
the chaos of light
washed away
and those minor bruises you caused me
would heal
because the broken body life
had caused me was bearable
when you
were my splint
