i’ve been marked by better than you*

but suddenly it is your absence
bruises me, although my hips
still ache with the insistence of
your touch last night,

and oh,
i have to let this go
i see
the way it plays out.

you left
as the sun was coming
up and i am still not
tired i am
jit tery awake
exhausted, knowing that the day
will begin again, in only a few hours.
i am beginning to think
i am meant for
