don’t forget me.

I have a special longing
for one
my fate – a virgin for me
shining in the sun she brings herself
to me, to the labyrinth
undivided, unequivocal,
to give her all to my only love.

until at last we turn inside
& examine every vestige of every day
until you can see
it is all there is
& this beautiful girl
will give herself to me no more.

her missing words of love cut my flesh
and she is called to guard our love no longer.

farewell, she says alone
a memory already -
she turns & runs
into the embrace of the enlightened night:
for the night understands what I cannot -

that the clarity of morning will surely follow.
