Melted

I’ll try once more to be
buttery
sweet and soft
let it all go
start anew try
deep breath
come undone
try
calm the nerves
seep into deep space
melt stars
I never get out
of my head enough
to realize
I am nothing
save the few bits of
blood and bone
I’ve left
squandered all the rest
on something
radical
I believed
as love
call it madness
I go again
