Speak About The Love She Gave You - Poem by RIC BASTASA

speak about it
freely given
all of it
nothing left
for anyone else

the love she gave you
is everything
inside her
she is emptied
like a balloon
that you just pricked

only you
can make her whole again
breathe in
the love you have taken
empty yourself too
and be deflated
for once

how does it feel?
it feels like
you are rising
the more you breathe out
the more air
you too breathe in

it feels like
you are full
you are so light
and now you are flying
