i leave myself behind.

i can not stand myself.

awake too early
and awake too late.

i arrived, but didn't come.

blank features 
and soundless mouth.

lips made for speech
but incapable of it.

hands, meant to hold you,
but withheld from you.

i can not want you 
to want me.

i leave myself below the line.

could not even
muster the effort
to punch below the belt.

could not even
master the movements
of you against me against me.

i am blank.

lips made for you
but i am incapable of filling
your place in my mouth.

my eyes, cold
and desolate, 

watching the
emptied door frame
in awe.
