"O' vase of acid, it is love you are full of; you know who you hate." - Lesbos, Sylvia Plath

It is easy to forget
How much you have lived. In between the quiet spells, the onward and upward pull of gravity towards bigger and better things,
You are a double negative, seeping colour from every crease.

There is no sanctuary, for the incessant patterns traced over and over onto skin. We roll a dice and call it art, luck
is not on my side. Drowning in the grey blue, watching the sun paint you into a hologram, you fade and bend in the light, never still for long enough to remember a face, a name –

You are magnificence caught in an impossible space. Your heart is too heavy for me too hold, I keep wrapping myself around you but it’s never enough.
Reflected, beamed up from the boiling tarmac, a mirage
is all you are. Flawed, figmented, too good to be true.
