Disembodied

Perpetually wrecked
erect ineffectually
anatomically incorrect
dissect, be sure there’s something left

plagued with heartache
unearthed inheritance
tattooed upon your back

don’t look now, but
your shadow’s separating
don’t look back, but
everything you care about

is following in your footsteps

quicksand abyss

dna means nothing
when you are spirited

I see you
floating there
but
still you care
for what
you’ve left behind

could’ve done better
could’ve done worse
arrive into cold hands
depart in a hearse

searching for
a fountain of youth
found too many distractions
along the way

I never wanted to be apart from you
but this dagger cut deeper than I ever thought it could
