to the moon

You said you loved me to the moon

but you couldn’t make it back.

You got lost in its craters

as I lost myself in mine,

a swarm of holes in my heart,

the hollow crevices from a million losses–

Nights spent bent over,

curled within my cocoon of melancholy.

It is in these eerily silent twilights

that I watch the moonlight stream in and illuminate my pale skin.

I let that silver light

sting,

sever,

dismantle my heart,

for what is letting go but a slow dismembering of a weighted heart?

 

And you sunk further away,

only 238,900 sharded inhales away,

floating….

floating

and I, swallowed by the density of unloved stars.

-Eva M.M.
