by Billie Daddario
You were the beginning of me
You Bohemian man, strong and self-defining
Relaxed, confidant, bobbing from the past.
Naturally I fit inside you.
Soft touches fully consumed and
Closed off from the inside
Fragile and afraid and then slowly and suddenly assured, safety.
Where are you now?
Where are we?
I see your broken shadow, but you’re not here
I’m suddenly aware I’ve been alone for a long time.
You look small and fragile
Violent shattered dreams
Worn out, dried up, without hope
Floundering, looking for inspiration.
Amnesia, won’t let you remember.
You hold the key
Igniting old passions.
Old peace is out of reach.
