Elixir

hisu-lee-30601.jpg

We poured it into ourselves

letting it seep

through valves

that would let it

bleed

into the parts

of us that were

always torn apart,

that would let it

feed

the parts

of us that were

always hungry for a part

of more,

for

the parts of us that we always wanted to make

whole

;

but torn things are never whole

,

their holes

are left

bleeding

and seeping

into valves

that feed

the parts of us

that were

more.
