to Drink and to See You, Again

Nicole Lyons

The Lithium Chronicles

Do I need to drink
to see you again,
cut myself open
again, to bleed
you out in a rush?
You’re gone now,
packed up and left
again, always fucking
again, until again
means nothing unless
I drink and I drug,
again, and I split
the cosmos, again.
Until I scream louder,
again, and faster than
the stars can carry you.
Until I can cry again,
until the edge
of the world comes
bursting again, so I can
come bursting again,
and then meet you, sliced
open again, somewhere
where blood no longer bleeds
red and you no longer leave,
again.
