I never left




I never left
the strip of sunshine
that fell through the window
along the carpeted floor

not when the glass shattered
all around me
exploding the moment

not when the cup spilled
into deep cracks
unreachable by cloth
to be removed

not when silence
killed the music
and breathing was
not an option

I never left
not when
when the blood that fell
was my own
all that was left
was the brittle shell
of who I used to be

the sunshine warmed me
and I forgot
