your face is twisted

and wet

bleeding acid

the sheets are twisted also

and you pull at them

I shiver and grope for words

fear like hooks

grabbing me

you thrash about

in this black place

deaf to me

your misery your new lover

I grovel and reach

but find only

jagged pieces

my hands like stones

unable to find you
