su amada

By Magdalena


today doesn't quite fit   
 it's fragile and awkward   
   and might just break   
 with the weight of her heart   
bearing down on its very existence   
 soon the hours will be gone   
 he left before they were over   
to be with stars and galaxies   
forever dreaming, boneless and blind   
 forgeting to miss her   
May: the month that takes   
jaws wide and teeth sharp   
holding pain and tears in its belly   
 swallowing light and life   
with a rib-cage full of ghosts   
when this time slips from her skin   
she will find her way back   
away from the hovering dusk, his silence   
she will no longer drown   
in the loss of his breathing
