My last poem to him

cemented in my psyche
i reach for you in my dreams
i call your name in the darkness,
the darkness that attacks my fears
the darkness, that my eyes cannot adjust to
forever you will haunt the world inside me
forever i haunt myself with
remembrances of your tenderness
how even after i hurt you
you washed me with your tears so pure,
you laced me with caressess so lovingly
you put aside your freshly opened wound
 to love me one last time,
to hold me one last time
to put me back together one last time
before you opened your palm
to let this spotted dove fly free
into the endless onyx night
