soul candy

People talk about love like it’s 
bubblegum on the tip of your tongue 
a hit from a cool new drug 
the chorus in your favorite pop song

But it’s more like 
hydrochloric acid for your cotton candy souls
it’s a five inch drill bit through my left collar bone 
it’s five hundred flood lights, after a dim room

it’s fire sparked by the friction between my blood and the walls of my veins as it races through my body at the speed of sound

a lightning lullaby that burns my ears

and some still wonder what reason I have to fear

—  wind-some-light 
Well, I Have Lost You by Edna St. Vincent Millay

Well, I have lost you; and I lost you fairly;
In my own way, and with my full consent.
Say what you will, kings in a tumbrel rarely
Went to their deaths more proud than this one went.
Some nights of apprehension and hot weeping
I will confess; but that’s permitted me;
Day dried my eyes; I was not one for keeping
Rubbed in a cage a wing that would be free.
If I had loved you less or played you slyly
I might have held you for a summer more,
But at the cost of words I value highly,
And no such summer as the one before.
Should I outlive this anguish—and men do—
I shall have only good to say of you.

…Spring will creep into this grim terrain/ Let drop, the purging rain./ Pillow turned to the opposite side/ Toppling ghosts that yell in pain./ -N.R.
