Supersymmetry By Demi Richardson


you – linger,
you – misguided violence,

you –

you – first heartbreak that shatters
your spinal column,
keeps you in bed for weeks and
cuts your hair, Samson

you – same heartbreak,
first lover that punctured you
right open

you – blue eyed, breathless, charmer
you – i need to give you up
you – don’t ask me to do
something i can’t

my fade – my
am i fading

my – run away, my –

related, i promise –

the only one i know
how to surrender to
is God.
