He left you for a tall blonde
with legs, long
Whose breasts weren’t scarred
like withered sunflowers
rent flesh becoming lines
of yellow, pink.
And I left you for another
inside me, some beastly thing that’s taken root
cracks showing in the foundation. I left you
for Autumn, Winter and snow, to be alone,
To waste away into nothing before mirrors,
To disappear into the drink.
And I did appear to be someone and
something else, completely.
I showed you eyes that can see,
A great red heart that beats and bleeds
