Day 573: for two years

to two years,
you were the heart i forgot to pick up from the dry cleaner
the stain they forgot to remove
the blood crusted under my finger nails
all reminders that something was there
and was whole
before it was broken
clean before it was tainted

730 mornings
i've spent trying to wipe the dreams of you from my eyes
curl them back
hold them
bug like
in a jar
for you to marvel at
in 10 years time
call every scared mistake
a masterpiece
call every tear
the ocean in your veins
every last piece of dried saliva
a kiss that was supposed to carry into infinities
that we never really believed existed
but we waited for it anyways
in a jar
that we forgot
when we were busing breaking
