I WROTE NOTHING FOR DAYS

I WROTE NOTHING FOR DAYS

 

Trying to find emptiness

in a tall glass of midnight madness.

My thoughts on the slow, dark time

of your words.

Open up your closed book

eat the crumbs of cake off my hand.

I fed the wrong man

old tattered thoughts

in ancient chains

while I sunk in mythological mud

up to my ankles

washed your fake love

with aloe and coconut

but your European veins and musky scent

are alive on my skin

like birth marks and moles

no matter how hard I try to rub you off

no one can see your penetrating marks.
