s.h.

It is like you are
pull
pull
pulling away
and pulling me apart-
and all of these carefully constructed
puzzle pieces are scattering and
finding new homes under sofas
and behind these walls being built
stronger every day.
and I wish I knew what I did wrong
yet again
or how to make you want me
like you did before:
frantic and intractable
because I have worked myself
to blisters thumbing through
these self-help books to
try to find an answer.
