Teach Me June 21, 2014

Teach me how to unlace every finger from your own,

Unwrap my thighs from your hips,

as I try to pull the strands
 of memories and plans
from all my images of you.
Teach me how to a navigate a life where you are captain.
With all the tributaries I have carved into days entwined with yours,
 teach me how to draw back, empty my thoughts, then try to reroute
 around the trenches that I only wish to fall into.
Teach me to dream again from inside a cave
 instead of the stars.
Teach me to stand again, to hear music,
to hear anything other than my own grief blasting through my skull
then settling into my chest
before suffocating my very desire for anything
but you.
Or, teach me how to love you, again.
