Cross your ts

By: Shelbi Henny

Skipping thru wrongdoings
depressing the romanticism 
that caresses and kisses 
everything we miss
I stain pillowcases
taunting myself
knowing I need more than dedication
it hurts 
watching voodoo
place spells and conjure spirits
that once housed my heart
torrents
biblical to interactions   
we played in the dark 
unmasking my fate and lonely heart
I thought I knew you
streaking trails that lead me 
to promises that skip
introductions 
holding boundaries 
and scaling my balance into wanting
nothing
absolutely nothing
can I recall memories
when they dot I's 
yet cross me out
