How to Burn Ashes

She says love

don’t live here no more.

That my touch is gone

and has been

for a long, long time

and she doesn’t care

anymore.

 

The part of her

that is fire

has been put out.

The part of her

that should grow

has been unfed

and left to wither.

 

With her

all there is now

is memories.

Possibilities.

 

Can I find a cure?

A little bit

of what we’ve missed,

experience

something new,

something more?

 

Leave nothing,

but phoenix ashes

and complicated

explanations

of what we didn’t do

wrong or right.

Left the past

tomorrow might

be life

like we’ve never known.
