In Your Presence


i did not know
my heart bruised like a peach
until you pressed your thumb
its juicy center

these threatening tears
are none of mine;
your murky essence
squeezed from my insides,
from my lacrimal duct

and i wipe you
from my eye,
for your presence is
noxious distraction.

  1. Each stanza stands out, I like none better than the other. How hauntingly sad this is my lovely. Your murky essence squeezed from my insides….oh Miri. She sheds him from within.. gorgeous.
