Momentary Sparks

You were but a temporary replacement
filler, distraction

An oasis

To keep my heart busy,
keep it from clamping shut
nerve-shocking finality of thick
steel doors

Not my One
but no less important

In the absence of…everything,
regret, fake sincerity,
breathed hollow platitudes
to dampen the echoes

Bare, honest–
only for the sake of momentum,
daily function

Warned of poison and
openly false
you still came near
pace unwavering.
Were you as in need as I?

Set new intentions,
shifted gears; shifted hips

We rubbed our raw selves
trying to make light, heat
to sustain us

Momentary sparks
to get by,
one more day.
