You anchor my heart

Weigh it down

Heavy, thumping, stone still


Leaving behind a ruffled mind

Sleep eludes me

You steal dreams like a thief


Your words rustle round

Encircling, blowsy, gone

Maddening beats, false whispers


Left me to evermore wonder

Did you care?

As you kicked me to the ditch
