jesusblgirlOne night
so long ago the date is erased
I sat in an unfamiliar room in grainy dark
closed my eyes
thinking of you
who had forsaken me
I asked the void
if you are there
reach out now
my cell phone glowed
one message received
we met
in dead of night
a strange cold
you had changed your hair
I was all dried up from tears
like Scandinavian fish
staring out of pickling jars
show in desiccated eyes
the measure of hurt
you put your head in my lap
and somehow
even though it should never have happened
we fused back together
like glass evolves over years
in mire of elements so easily broken
if not for chance
I am glass of a volcano
I always knew you would rupture
spewing me as lava
discard your carefully stacked fire
was it worth how I feel now?
screaming into silent night?
watching for you to hear?
when maybe you never did?
it was merely coincidence
we thought serendipity
