say my name.

say my name
a fervent prayer to stone gods
and empty temples
there’s nothing here
that can assuage the emptiness.
but the heat enslaves.
as i mimic life in this broken landscape
your words echo
across the wasteland
indistinct and limned with fear
i can taste it
even at this distance.
i’ve been there,
where you are,
hollowed out and ravenous
surprised by joy
in the depths of complacency.
i am drowning
silently going under
numb and empty
i’ve gone dark.
i want nothing but the eternal present
i want nothing but this moment
bright with possibility
bereft of hope
someday we’ll leave this place
and not look back.
until then
be mine.
