murmuration

i have no place
to put
this broken heart

no shelf wide enough
no bucket deep enough
no abyss dark enough

it sits in my hand

beating
beating
beating

bleating

hope dripping
through my fingers

faster

than i can catch it

i stand here beneath
this forever sky

naked and afraid and

raise arms high
until this cracked love clock
eclipses
my view of the sun

backlit kaleidoscope prism

the color of everything

hold on
hold

on

i have no place
to put
this broken heart
