Dusk

You attached yourself to
Every molecule in my body
In a covalent bond
I have walked in your shadow
On your pavement I am complete
Like a puzzle like a lie like a fool
You are the oxygen deficit in my blood
Early in a sprint as I drown in lactate
Unable to clear it as if in organ failure

This is the failure of my soul
This longing to be to do to see
Myself proved like a theorem
Like a theory like a crime
Like all is nonsense that cannot feel
Without the danger of explanations
That cannot be without thought
That cannot see without
Mistaking it for meaning
That cannot be accepted without
Your oversight

Be the meaning I need
Forgotten chased away
That tweaked my nose in flight
With a promise of capture
And has not yet returned
From its exile
Throw back the curtain
The Milky Way is trying to tell you
The truths of your birth
The truths of your lineage
The truths of the shadows upon
Which you step with such conviction
Look listen feel and you may
Just be reborn into the complete
Unknown unbeckoned
Unnecessary unexpected
Love in the sun on an afternoon
Like the one you lost on that pavement
In the dusk of your innocence

    Which you step with such conviction.

    I have to borrow a word here from Oloriel above. This is explosive.
