i lost my marbles

when i was young

they were very old


with swirls of glitter

found in an old house attic

in a drawstring pouch


now searching the internet

for my beautiful marbles

going crazy


just what i needed

another thing to grasp at

marbles should be lost



i remember us

making love like dogs in heat

in abandoned buildings


then you abandoned me

and your love came crashing down

brick by brick by brick


i stood there buried

in the dark waiting for you

but you never came


rising from the dead

drinking my blood to survive

i gave birth alone
