001 :: untitled 02

a lost love waiting by the window
traced its way back in through
your tentative steps
you left and poetry returned

your virility that charmed me
has the same force as
your vulnerability that captivated me
forever i shall hold on to your ghost

of becoming your catalyst
your night spirit, your morning face
less powerful, they are
than i am now

a past you could not kill
a scar you will relish in
i loved you
in no way i could again

but it has been decided
i could only love one
and because you fear
you left and poetry returned
