To Rest

With nowhere to go, and nothing to see

I carry your memories with me.

Like the bones of someone long since dead 

They’re old and worn;

A symphony of rotting. 

The scent of unrequited love is quite grotesque-

It hits my nose and lingers. 

Despite the urge, I hold on tightly. 

And even though you left my heart undressed, 

I cannot leave these bones to rest. 

Our galaxy you left so nonchalantly,

Mundane to you, but everything to me.

Like the bones of someone long since forgotten,

They attract all that is unpleasant.

As I embrace optimism, my only friend,

Passionately I kiss deceit,

With lips as salty as the sea. 

And even when I try my very best,

I cannot leave these bones to rest. 

 

This ghoulish party that I throw 

Has left me hopelessly aglow.

This flow of conversation feels complete, 

Albeit one sided; obsolete. 

The madness in me I must digest, 

As ignorance passes through my soul.

It is with great sadness, I’m forced to forget. 

And even though it will forever sting my chest,  

I could never leave these bones to rest.
