momentary forevers

she broke my ribs
to fashion
a more fitting cage
for a flighty
dreamwoven heart
she broke my spirit
to create
a pliable devoted slave
eradicating the
things she said
she loved most

and like the silence
that watches
in eternal boredom
i watched as
all i was
was all forgotten
as she gazed upon
me with a
stranger’s eyes
discarded in an
empty parking lot
in front of
an abandoned
strip mall
somewhere south
of home

that flighty heart
hanging upside down
as the last lines
dripped silently
in a basket woven
of splintered bone
and promises of
momentary forevers
