Since You Went Away

Since you went away,
I’ve been exploding
all through my body.
I’m a catastrophe.

Since you went away,
I’ve only got the world to blame.
Isn’t it a shame?
It’s such a shame.

Since you went away,
life is dizzy and earth is spinning.
Electricity fills my alcohol,
but it never jolts me happy.

Since you went away,
I’ve been bitter and complex.
A mind drifting through space
unable to face its artistry.

Since you went away,
I have lost me.


(From the book Kairos)
