Things Fall Apart

When I think of you,
things start to fall apart.




as if molasses
were sliding
from a spoon,
the crumbling begins.
Cracks spider
like lightning
crashing across slate skies,
and I break again,
setting the pieces down
like a trail of bread crumbs
leading to your memory.
My whole is no longer one.
I am not me
but mere flashes
of this remembered version
splintered through
with slivers of you.
