Decay

by Billie Daddario

You were the beginning of me

You Bohemian man, strong and self-defining

Electrically charged

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.
