Just laying on the couch, running a fever and running a mind. My equilibrium is off- dizzy with an infection in the left ear. Figured I'd just compile a short poem (they started as tweets) about this relationship I had in 2014. We met in April, month 4. Lasted 7 months. This is the basis of the poem's structure. It doesn't rhyme, in retrospect, we didn't either.
Toxic from the get-go
The first link catalyzed was me
Dissolving us back to two
Incendiary and passionate...
It's just a chemical reaction
Yours, mine, ours.
It happened for a reason
For that same reason
Incinerated itself into oblivion.
You were beautiful
Like neon lights in the city's introspective exhaustion.
My personal drug.
Every ounce exuding an ethereal glow.
While you're lighting up another world...
There's ash here in these ruins
Pervading every pore of interpersonal relationships
Defined by you
You'll find out soon enough that the invitation was burned like Icarus.
