Just Another Day

It’s been a week
since you left
and tore a hole
in my atmosphere,
letting in
the gamma rays,
the end of days:
all in a haze
of tears and
holographic “I’m sorries.”

Was it you?
Was it me
that left
For a new love to find?
To be cruel to be kind?
Escaping a bind
that catches the skin
like fingers of crushed glass.

I find myself,
standing outside
the home we made,
wishing these arms—those walls—
could hold you, again.
A chance to feel–
a moment to steal–
but our fate is sealed
with all being said
and done.

If only
I could evaporate
into the clouds
of that noon sky
and rain down
without a care
far, far away
from here.
