Bird Of Prey

Everything I Never Told You


One day, which day
she couldn’t say.
Her love for him
fell asleep in the sun,
never to wake back up.
Little dramas played
out too long, unfolded
into nothingness.
Her image of him deluded
by devotion misplaced.

The reality of his form
shallow, shallow
she laid down
Sometimes there’s
no getting around the
gun in your mouth
or the aftermath.
The brokenness in the
throat, the dying of
what’s left of the light.
No longer content to
try and resuscitate
what might have been.

Faith is faith only until
it shatters. His offering,
those of a barnyard cat
never the heart of it,
only the remains.
