Poem 2016 by Chelsey Cofone


Umbrella

of discontent

raining excuses

insecure

soothing fingers

across face

hands tell
lies

pieces of her
suffocating

deficit

scattered
pieces of her

across
his bed

now
in the dirt

she cannot
find herself

again, again

his hands
present lies

a memory

pieces of her
stolen

burning
suffocating
deficit

breakfasts
shared

dinners
replaced


with lust

hungry
for pieces
of you
of myself

stolen

this soil
where he stood
now stands
elsewhere

happily
without her

all the while

she rots
in the soil
searching for
her pieces

stolen
waiting
suffocating
deficit

please

come back
