seance

the way the blood migrated down

her face mirrored the single tear

that cascaded down mine the day

I realized I had to let her go

the day I realized that addiction is always enabled

that people don’t get better they get through

that she was nothing but a ghost from my past life

eyeing me in the mirror like bloody mary

she had become what we had asked for

"I know myself but that is all" - F. Scott Fitzgerald
