I can reason
That it was never about me;
That she was me, her, and him, and them;
The thoughts that would slither and writhe
Deep inside the dark infinite expanse
Demonically apparating, flitting, in and out
Leaving particle trails of excrements
Laying waste in synaptic data encasement;
But I wanted it to be.
That was in some other life,
Some other utopian dream,
I created in efforts to keep,
This fantasy fiction that fate
Unfolded in front of me.
She would say it better
She was better with words
If she really wanted to make a connection
She could have reached out and grabbed
The trembling hand I had extended.
But she didn’t.
Of her cold lifeless body
