you’re in my eyes again
the way the sky pours rain upon
the roof of my house.
i read your poems
& saw remnants of your bones battling
the crescent shape of the moon your cell has borrowed.
i saw you making an ignition of
fire from the al fatiha to burn the wood of
pain that ate the flow of oxygen inside of you.
i saw you withering like the rose my
grandmother planted in our backyard garden.
i saw you holding the feet of God to
lit a revival inside your blood.
i saw you screaming against the
thing that caused you to throw yourself on
the hard ground. i saw you swimming into
the arms of death.
everytime the moon becomes half, i see you.
