Unrequited - Poem by Indira Donegan
The cold wind
that announces the arrival of winter.
A naked body
standing with shoulders aligned to the gust.
It steals the largest possible heat transfer
i have already resigned to give away.
One hundred billion neurons
firing complicated emotional responses
too visceral and deep for words
like the borage of a foreign language
yet you clearly know)
it cannot be helped.
by the flickering of despair-
A candle blown out by the wings of a moth
devoid of self-restraint
and a fluttering expression
more half lie than half truth.
I find myself
Drowning in a hollowed out
version of a once sacred dream.
in the space between
Falling Down Violently
and the unbearable stillness that follows.
