i am drawing
a map to find
us I don’t know
where i lost you
(how
or why)
where i lost me
(how
or why)

i try to return
where we last were
together when i left
with a colon
a closing bracket
not knowing
we would not
return to each
other in that
white rectangular
space of black
and white glyphs
scented in blush
lines of love
darker strokes
of lust, all of it
now rubbed clean
as if it never was

but it was,
it was us.

  1. Sweet! I liked this line of thought in particular:
    ‘white glyphs scented in blush lines of love’

  2. Hello. Not sure if you meant to follow my blog or not. WP notified me that you followed, but soon after that the “follow” disappeared.
    Anyway, take care.
