Pieces

never cut out pieces of yourself

//

to make someone else whole again.

//
they will inhale the pieces of you like the tar of a cheap cigarette,
and then they will release you like a toxic fume.

//
meanwhile, you will continue to bleed tears of longing and hope,
while the pieces of you will remain concealed in

//
places you will never be able to find again.
