letting go

i let you into my heart,
and now i’m letting you go,
drop by ruby drop.

i let you into my heart,
hoping you’d take over
every yearning cell.

the breeze has stilled,
the grass blades shudder,
i squint. the sky’s so pale!

the greedy earth soaks,
every crimson drop, as if
she’s seeking you too.

and on cue, the cold sprinkler
washes away the red. to think
you were in there!

the bees keep me awake,
in case you slip out, last drop
from my wretched hands.
