"Do not feel lonely; the entire universe is inside you" -Rumi


You gave me a ball of yarn--


Your sanguine soaked blood

Extending itself to every fiber--

To Every finger of mine that caresses it,

In hopes of finding something further;

Perhaps your heart?


Perhaps I was hoping that you carved out your heart,

And set it aside just for me.


Perhaps I was hoping for too much.


What am I to do with a crimson ball--

But to wait for its intoxicating aroma to fill up my nostrils

With the most dastardly of scents?


Am I to carve out my own heart,

And place it in a ball of yarn

To give to you?

Watching the strings soak up with color?


What are we to do but to build a bridge

Between our eyes

Locking ourselves in a bubble

So that you can never again turn away?


So that you can never again take away this

Bitter ball of crimson?


I carved out my heart for you,

And it rots a deep byzantium.
