Hairline Trigger (reprise)
Wrestling with this hourglass
Trying to bring back
All the times that we fought
And all the times I lost
There's a lifetime of moments
We still had to share
But the dust of your bones
Settled before the dust
In your veins had a chance
These days I've lost all sense
Of what's worth it
I haven't listened to music
In a month.
I've never known a darkness like hers.
You went in a hail storm
And I don't know if that's poetic
Or just the crescendo of what
Your life led up to.
You always were chaos incarnate.
A gun with a hairline trigger.
The only blank left in the barrel
Is the one taking space in my head
Since you left.
I never knew how many facets
There were to grief.
I don't think they make numbers that
There's a pinprick of nothingness
In the world
And most people pass it by-
But some eyes, they haven't
Let it out of their sight.
I have grey hairs you'll never see.
She told me it was nothingness.
The anger on my tongue died later
But so help me,
Give me one more day to relive it
And maybe I won't feel so empty.
Just one more.
My younger sister passed away from a ******/fentanyl overdose some months back. This is a collection of thoughts that also I threw lines in from an old poem also about her.
I'm not over it.
