Poetry is just the evidence of life. If your life is burning well, poetry is just the ash. Leonard Cohen

Don't Go

Don't go
You must always be here
with me
Every minute
Every day
Even when I close my eyes
you are here
Your image
seared under my eyelids
Your voice
burrowed in my deepest ear
Your mouth
stealing my breath like
a cat steals from a baby
replacing it
with your leaden, love laden air
What would I do
in your absence?
I cannot miss you if you
don't go.
