Come back to me!
i hear your noise echo
back to me your sound echos
but the reverberation back
leaves your echo
incomprehensible

i know youre at the end
of your dark dark tunnel. echoes
of your former self hanging
on the end of your rope.
Come back!

you want to give up,
lay on the hard black metal
and give up. your rope, it will
swing and hit me in its pendulum
the echo of how close I got
to lighting your way. and you
reflected off the walls.

I almost had you back,
but it is so hard to see
down that dark dark tunnel
and like sonar I listen to you,
for you, for the swoosh of jeans.
but i don't know one sound
from the other. you're so good
at hiding in your darkness.
Please. Come back to me,
whole because
i don't know
how much
longer
you
we
i
have
until
you're
swallowed
by the darkness
and your echo
dissipates
I don't know what I'd do if he made that choice.
