typhoid after a year
365+ days
of sitting
of you
on each and every one
not talking
not seeing
not the tiniest bit
of communication
i thought of you every day
every fucking day
your name is emblazoned on my subconsciousness
the source of all good
beauty itself

i am in terrible pain now.
what if you were to come back?
do you know i would still run a thousand miles
to be with you?
this precious fragile universe i've built up in your absence, that i've nurtured and tried to love
would it collapse?
will it?
and even if i saw you again,
would it end badly
as the first time
through boredom or indifference?
for a while
i even forgot your face
your physical reality
you were just a name
a name of the perfect
noun, moreso adjective, verb, to be good, to be superlatively best
and when i was reminded in some passing glance of your... ... i nearly died in ecstasy.
do you know that
if in that year
if i had seen you in the street
all i would have done
would be to have bowed my head in silent prayer?
could i still abandon my world for you?
i have become weak
i have trained myself to it
chained myself to it
create the illusion of stability
i don't even know who i am anymore (did i ever?)
i don't even know what i am anymore.
i just feel sick to my stomach thinking about it.
i don't think...
i think this might be from some ...
i can't even think about it anymore.
ill out of expectation of good?
how can i expect anything?
(you spelled my name wrong in your one sentence)
i would hope i could keep your attention for more than a few moments at a time now.
i've been practicing (i hate to admit it's just been for you).
i feel so cold
and so hot at the same time.
i can't stand up.
i can't even think.
please come back.
.fallen like a coma patient slowly coming to....

emerging from hibernation but with a low rumbling hunger ...not fierce ...not maddening

first a finger moves....the lips twitch....slowly coming back from where?...

the body is felt again... the heaviness ...grounding .....grounding...

the toes wiggle slightly...

after testing each respective body part....refamiliarizing.....

a stretch....a cat like stretch ...and eyes open...

suddenly sitting.....every sense is finally awake...testing the air...testing it all

content to stay in the shadows ....stay in the shadows for now ....content to watch the hunt ... to watch the dance....for now...content

licking lips....sad smiling eyes ...

watching .... watching .... waiting

Death of a Rose hmm... 040114
what's it to you?
