See Me, My Darling

by Anna Ruiz

See, my Darling
this is where you broke into my heart,
broke down hallways of doors,
broke open oceanic windows
like a thief in the long inconsolable night,
see this gaping hole,
this is where you crashed through
with your dragon soul,
burned my temple to the fierce ground
and chained my effigy to a ghost ship —
for all eternity,

see me, my Darling,
see through me

call me to the other side.
