Occupatio

I’m not saying that I’m asleep:
the days all feel a little dreamless.
When was it last I was awake–
sunlight breaking from my eyes?
I will not begin to wonder
at the way I have not felt
at home, or the thought
that love awaited leaving
when I wished it the most.
No– I will not consider
the chance I have lost
a companion in myself.
Never could I be
so lonely as to imagine
erasing it all.
no:no–
there is nothing
I could never say
to make it fade:
to fade along with it.
