Circular Emotion

19 Feb

It was not attention I wanted
it would not fill the void
Feeling as if I was not there
cast far off over the Earth
I’d look and you were not there
on the other side of the Earth
my heart ached to know we were both there
I tried everything to know
that you and I existed together
but further and more empty the void
I was not remembered until I wanted to be remembered
a shed photograph burnt at the edges in your mind
It was flesh that I wanted to be
sacrificed everything to be that for you
and then berated for not being me
I did not exist anymore than a shadow
more alone I felt when I was with you
and it ate me piece by piece
it chewed me
a black hole that I would not acknowledge
until I was without you
But I was always lonely with you
