what's your lovers name?

​lover from the past

February 24, 2021


i see you.
the engraved words on my bedroom walls
which bear your mark and read like sweet, mumbled things

i feel you.
the flitting shadow behind my figure
which wanes as the waxy sun descends down the hills

each evening, as dusk deliberates with the gold circle
i turn to you and chuckle, “when will they learn? darkness conquers all.”

i need you.
engulf me like a velvet embrace, musty and pristine!
speak to me, when are you from?
i feel dislodged in this century that isn’t mine
as the dates of our days begrudgingly pass me by-

i confess
you are for me, trapped under pages,
too far beneath…

but may i shoulder your shadow and whisper to my crumbling walls?
you know the sun only rises for the hope of it all.
