doubt
like a feather
brushes my cheek softly
softly and yet
when i open my eyes
i only see
you
sleeping next to me
warm breath
curling around your chin
your pulse beating
vulnerably
in your throat.
you look less innocent
when you sleep,
impossibly so.
too many becauses to count
made me lie
and lie down next to you
and when i finally slept
i dreamed
an aneurysm of
mindless violation
searing lonliness
timeless misery
shaming defeat.
wet
i awoke to us
covered in my own blood.
and now i begin
to digest poisoned reality
to believe in the decay of your soul
i cleave to my own evil,
i court vengance like a lover.
but
just as i am about
to allow my power to crescendo
your eyes flutter open gently
and pull me apart
like a tiny embryo in the womb
being sucked out to death
by the abortionist's wand.
then, for no apparent reason
you say hello
and i make you coffee.
