Aurora



wake to a scent



of the woman you never were




one proactively believes



no memory is false




yesterday, the sand



shimmered with black diamonds




once, you opened



eyes and still loved me




tomorrow, the world



will form one black diamond




once, I loved



you back with much helplessness




and fear was only as real



as a black diamond
