waiting

 

I see you and you look

like you, minus

something;

stretched white framework

with part subtracted:

a fraction

 

every second you lose

more. I want

to gather it all

every memory split in half

every thought

 

glancing down I see

a wire mannequin

of what you used to be

unable to hold yourself

all bones

 

and I, all flesh

too weak to reach

to catch

every breath you free
