I don't think about you, except when I do
Like an aching tooth that only throbs when my tongue moves
And generally, I'm a pretty talkative dude
But lately I feel like I'm talking for two,
Reviewing reruns of us like I'm sifting for truth
Amidst the ******* and deceit, I don't know what hurts the most;
The love that's left, or me being left to argue with a ghost
Chained to a boat with no hope for a coast,
I'm inclined to float, or maybe learn from you and sail out

It was nice seeing you darling, hope you're doing well now

She shines like breathing bone
   Cut or beat or twisted
Out of forgettable flesh
  Aching, truth-white
A heart-skip jump to the pit of the gut
   Devil-cold water on a sticky hot day
She consumes all at once,
   Surrounding 'til there never was
      A 'you'

As if
   there was ever yourself to lose

Before anything,
Let me say I love you
And that my body burns
With thirst for you--
Dehydrated in the desert
Of your absence, wishful eyes
Spy mirages of you
Masquerading as people.
But, when I lean in closer
I see they're just shadows
Of your laugh, your eyes--
There are pieces of you
everywhere in my life,
Like shattered glass in a carpet.

Some days I can feel
My skin melt to dust,
Taste the bitter ash of
Burned bridges and rust
As everything revolves away
From me and stops at her feet.
Though, most days I just feel like
A unobserved wave at sea,
Fading quietly into the breeze.

So yeah, I'm good, too.
It was nice to see you.

I scrawl ****** love notes
On grease-stained napkins
To women and visions,
But mainly the latter.

I'm 6' 2" and six feet under,
I love like ice and sob like thunder.
All of these canyons in my mind
Will echo with your name for all time
Love a poet? No, love a storm
See your name carved in the landscapes I've torn.
These hands are for making breaks and bruises
With a love like mine everybody loses
DM Pierce Nov 2013
i miss you, you know.
not as urgent or as painful
as i used to, but i do
i do, i do
i used to burn, now i ache
my soul’s scarred with
an image of your face
