#37 (I Packed a Promise)


I packed your bag

the IV is dripping

your lilac shirt

I packed as a promise

look at me

they clean bloodbaths

on a daily basis

stay awake


your eyes wide open

begging for a kiss

kissing your forehead

and left temple

the other one I save

for this afternoon

until you calm and close

left my fear

at the doorstep

for the darkness

growing in the longshadows

to swallow

from your window

culvers nesting in a big pine tree
