I see you and you look

like you, minus


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
