Holding my chest against the wall
I expel this anxiety which accelerates my heartbeat.
The echo of my organs humming to you,
this impotence to believe that you didn't care,
this emerging urge to have you near.
I loose my breath at this time of the night,
when the bed speaks to me so cold-
coming into her so empty-
fills an obscure hole in my heart,
marking a mystical moon at night.
THE FEMALE ZOO
