I am

both shades
of midnight

when you
slip into
my mind


tell me again

that she wasn’t
as good as me

when you
explored her skin
instead of mine


the things
left unsaid
burn in my chest

look at me

a black hole
playing human

*Published in and still (the cherita book 37)
*tell me again and the things left unsaid were designated as a cherita lighthouse (editor’s choice)
