I was the empty space between your words

You misunderstood me.


i was the rain in a fur coat

not autumn in sneakers


you dictated memories for me 

to restructure my brain 

but you never saw 

that unused quarter of soul

where i piled them.


i bled in prayers 

yet you revised my wounds 

on opinionated blackboards

leaving tiny voids for reactions


all this for the sake of

one photograph in your wallet

a decade ago


you are just stale flesh with ordinary bones

and i mistook you for human


I misunderstood you.
