Missing (Day 479)


Seduced  falling 
into that pleasure 
relative to pain  

a moment 
of unspooling
unwinding fibers

frayed ends easing 
through hardened 
knot twists

fever-burnt  
prickling 
in cavedark coolth  

buoyant  leaden  
bedded by a body 
unwilling to live  

still  unwilling to 
let go  of life  still 
missing  just missing
