“Cutting Him Out”

 

She swishes around

the wine

in her glass

an early dinner

that turned into

a night of dissecting

reflections of him

closely followed up

by questions

she feels

she needed to

ask herself,

he came into

her life

through a door

she mistakenly

left open

to her heart

a hopeless

closet romantic

believing in the

existence of

true love

while secretly waiting

for the right

man to appear

that will melt

away

that protective layer

surrounding

her heart

and set it free,

but she never

saw him coming

he wrapped himself

around her whole

body

with the gentleness

of a Summer breeze

her world now

lit

by the light

of his invisible

sun

as she’s bound

by love

to an orbit

around him,

she tilts the

bottle of merlot

her glass getting

more attention

tonight

than usual

a trusted friend

for messy situations

such as these

with every swallow

of the dark-blue grape

she is able to

pull more arrows

out of her heart

but unable to

stop her love

from leaking out

of the holes

left behind,

wanting to stop

the pain

from those

moments

but not lose

the sweetness

of the memory

she tries to

surgically

cut the cancerous

tissue away

from her precious

thoughts

saving the warm

emotional center

of the nucleus

letting it live on

within her

without destroying

herself

in the process,

she looks down

into her glass

able to see

it’s bottom

she pours the

last of the wine

slides her right

hand under the

glass

its long stem

protruding from

between her fingers

she pulls open

the patio door

and steps into

the fading light

of the sun

it’s golden rays

lapping against

her smooth

brown skin

as she rearranges

all her newly

trimmed

memories

of him

and watches

the sun

as it kisses

the horizon,

and as the sun

starts to slip

away

hooked on to

it’s last rays

of light

from the dying

day

is her Summer breeze

as she unwraps

herself from it

and lets it blow

softly out of

her life…
