i am sad from wanting
but not from wanting you.

the winters worn away
and with the snow melted the brokenness
we were and i am not sorry for it.

i've stopped cussing beneath my breath,
been wearing more black
and if you so much as
cross the threshold
of my house
i swear-

this isn't about you.

this is about the way you still manage
to pull at my heartstrings strung
out
across countries and continents,
the length of the world,
my soul tangled
round seoul,

how your hand still manages
to wrap around mine and i hear your voice,
thick with culture,
the stereotype supreme of irish catholic,
murmuring in my ear that it's all
right while you move my fingers
into my throat-

this is about how-
no matter how far you move (away)-
you will keep your grasp tight on me
and crush me if you can
just so you don't
lose me.
but if you don't want to lose me you need to let me go

this is one of those poems that should be read aloud, I think.
