I Remember Your Face

(A Reminiscence Of Young Love)

I remember your face.!BfESe0g!2k~$(KGrHqIOKjoEryZ14zGzBK+4mWBN8w~~_35

You were the one

whose eyes froze my hands

from their usefulness

with just a glance.

You were the one

whose ears

like malformed

snails, would lose my

whispers in their curls

until nothing of

me was left but

stale breath.

The one

whose nose would sniff

the scent of fragrant

young women and fill

your lungs with their

incense until my own

felt washed,

and bleached,

and faded.

The one

whose mouth

opened wide

creating a vacuum, that

sucked the marrow out of my

shins, and toes, and fingers,

licking them clean

before bed.

I remember your face.

It’s bigger than the Milky

Way in my heart,

and yet smaller

than last weeks daydream.
