We did not know


we did not know
when you woke me
red lips on skin

that the breath
escaping into my ear
was almost your last

my mouth
on your shoulder
and down

lost together
one last time

at dusk my shadow
alternating red and blue
strobes against our home

family and strangers
come and go
I understand

you had fled
and discarded yourself
for me to find

Eloquently heartbreaking.
