Alone

Listen to Ivy read Alone

 

Alone

scratches wallpaper

inside my skull as

beetles black

scritch marigold earth

in search of light

-daytimes-

while vacancy creeps

into my

now

 

Now

taunts promises

boxed in glass

on my mantle

aging as cloudy

vision blurs

-i miss you-

twisting Alone into mistaking

you as

need

 

Need

splits then and maybe

tomorrow (not Now)

while wonderings

look at my phone

silent still

-unwanted-

wishing for

yesterday’s

reassurance

 

(Need for)

Reassurance

negates flight of mind

inside my skull

where spirit winds

essence

onto spools

-technicolor-

needed to fight

vacancy in my

now

 

-Enough-

 

Alone

i welcome

absence

-imaginings tinker-

threading dendritic constellations

weaving tapestries of possibilities

mending wayward wanderings

sewing theories into seeds

to cast

into breezes

 

Alone

i embroider my technicolor thread

-in my mind-

without

you
