I will sleep in the empty house
Empty will sleep in me
How we’ve longed for one another
I’ve been waiting for
I will cut through all the threads {but one}
Drift off
Along with the assassin in
the lidded candle on the exterior stairs
I will dream of love{rs}
To come and go
To hold the rope
To secure the lines
The three remaining will chase
down the unwanted
ones I block from my mind
Scratching deep grooves through dead skin

Will I heal {in time}?
