you are a horse running alone
and he tries to tame you
compares you to an impossible highway
to a burning house
says you are blinding him
that he could never leave you
forget you
want anything but you
you dizzy him, you are unbearable
every woman before or after you
is doused in your name
you fill his mouth
his teeth ache with memory of taste
his body just a long shadow seeking yours
but you are always too intense
frightening in the way you want him
unashamed and sacrificial
he tells you that no man can live up to the one who
lives in your head
and you tried to change didn’t you?

closed your mouth more
tried to be softer
prettier
less volatile, less awake
but even when sleeping you could feel
him travelling away from you in his dreams
so what did you want to do, love?
split his head open?
you can’t make homes out of human beings
someone should have already told you that
and if he wants to leave
then let him leave
you are terrifying
and strange and beautiful
something not everyone knows how to love

I could not see the life I live.Wheeling to catch it as it was,I found myself the fugitive;There were my footprints, in reverse.I could not praise them, could not curse.Bare of their principle and cause,
They lay caught fast within that realmNo inquiry can justify,No good or evil overwhelm.To enter was to be interredWhere the gross lip absorbs the word.It was what dead men occupy.
Or so it seemed. And yet I live.Living I left my tracings there.Driven historian, I arriveHere where I blindly went, and see.Dark walker through dubiety!—Resuming you I grow aware.
Which is my life. O formless groundOf quick experience, but notExperience itself, I foundThat I had walked upon thy voidSaved by the blindness I employed,Till I stood blinking in my thought.

I could not see the life I live.
Wheeling to catch it as it was,
I found myself the fugitive;
There were my footprints, in reverse.
I could not praise them, could not curse.
Bare of their principle and cause,

They lay caught fast within that realm
No inquiry can justify,
No good or evil overwhelm.
To enter was to be interred
Where the gross lip absorbs the word.
It was what dead men occupy.

Or so it seemed. And yet I live.
Living I left my tracings there.
Driven historian, I arrive
Here where I blindly went, and see.
Dark walker through dubiety!—
Resuming you I grow aware.

Which is my life. O formless ground
Of quick experience, but not
Experience itself, I found
That I had walked upon thy void
Saved by the blindness I employed,
Till I stood blinking in my thought.

“We don’t get to stay in moments and that should not be news to you. We are both familiar with the concept of time, the awful math of it, how our history always gets larger, less understandable, overweight, overworked, over and over, and memories get misfiled and complicate feelings for no good reason and some people seem more able to deal with this, to keep their histories clean and well ordered but I still don’t understand why we came unstuck from those moments we wanted to stay and why the moments we wanted to forget still haunt us.” —Catherine Lacey, Nobody Is Ever Missing
