A jealous breeze

A jealous breeze
whispers, moving through the blinds
Sun drawn patterns dance across the floor
Echoes fill this dreaded room,
those whining words that whip and tousle hair.

I miss the purr of feline curvatures —
your back
pressed against my chest.
I’m torn, a flowered corpse, a leaded kiss.
My drowsy afternoon is filled with ends,
a bed of silent afterwards
I lay alone in phantom-pains
crippled with my empty hands
full with weight
and roundness of your absent breasts.

  1. Really great descriptions in this one bjorn. A flowered corpse especially. The detail of the breeze and the pattern of the sun really brought the setting to life.

    Missing feline curvatures – Ha, nice.

  2. this is pure eloquence the weight of the aloneness: the corpse, the silence, crippled, empty, absence … juxtaposed against a jealous breeze
