your doe

you’ve become familiar
with the with the spaces we’ve never occupied
at the same time

i’ve stopped screaming your name
from the depths of my memory
the terrors turned to tears
just linger softly
making your smile, your touch,
our history
an ancient fable that no one will believe

i know our love was pure

and there’s corner of heaven
with vinyl for your hands only

i always knew you’d come back to me
i didn’t know it’d be in spirit

i am forever your b-side
a fragmented sample
that air brushed the world
with the message
that love and dreams deferred
don’t make righteous
bed fellows
