For You.

Poetry by Cat McShane

You left me alone with my thoughts

And I'm drowning.

The words weigh me down

And pull me below the surface of you.

I kick and I scream

And I don't.

The waves feed off each other,

Growing in strength and number.

Streams of consciousness

Impel me to tumble further

Into the dark depths of the inexorable abyss.

The currents close in on me,

Crushing me in their fists.

The life that was left flows from me.

It drips, leaks, seeps from me,

To you.

Until that's all that's left,

A taste of what I once was.

I'm yours now and that's all I'll be,

Bitter tears torn out,

For You.
