Caveat Empty

Caveat Empty

I rejoice in thinking of you

without disharmony, —

in the ability of knowing

you no longer

own my most painful

rejection, my foolishness of heart,

that thought I held that I was something in your nothingness.

I can accept that I was a

stepping stone, a conquering underneath

your foot

to a higher plane of existence,

to memory long forgotten before

my perfume left your pillow.
