While You Are Away





my heart starts to      f     a      d     e

forgetting what heart beats and blood is for to sustain

and   and

my memory does not play

for you are the imprinted punctures of a code
that I must feel with my hand

cause while your are away

I                 see             well
    cannot             that

and if any particle of you remains

                                               a  r  t  b e g i n s t o s
                                            e                                 w
                                         h                                      e
                                      y                                            l 
                                   m                                                 l

cause whatever warmth is left
I stay up longer held.

while you are away
my heart begins to lack
all the times of composure
want less to interact
and I
and I
would just lay away
I am not that strong
while you are away...

    The creativity alone is amazing. Somehow it is hard for me to imagine to submerge myself so deeply into the realm of literal ingenuity. Amazing poem.
